Chickpea Chilli Burgers

Chick pea burger 1

Summer is round the corner and you know what that means? Barbeques! Lazy days enjoying the sunshine, catching up with friends, with chilled drinks and some delicious homemade burgers.

These chickpea burgers make a great barbeque treat. They are ideal for vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs, but are so tasty, meat-eaters will want some too! I love spicing mine up with chillies, but if you are catering for children or those with less spicy palates, you may simply want to omit these.

Of course, these burgers are not just for barbeques, but a super choice for all year round. These are very quick to whip up, uses store-cupboard basics and are healthy and delicious.

Chickpeas are great plant-based sources of protein and fibre. To further boost the nutrient content, I have added ground flaxseed, ground chia seed and protein powder (soya bean and pea varieties work brilliantly). If you do not have these, simply substitute for more oats.

Makes: 5-6 large burgers

Preparation time: 15-20 mins

Cooking time: 7-8 mins if pan-fried, 10-12 mins if grilled/ barbequed

Ingredients:

  • 80g rolled instant oats (gluten-free if required)
  • 1 X 425g can chickpeas, drained, washed and rinsed
  • 1 ½ red chillies, deseeded (or ¾ tsp dried chilli flakes)
  • 2-3 plump garlic cloves
  • 1 red pepper, roughly sliced into chunks
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and roughly sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, roughly sliced into chunks
  • 15g fresh coriander (or parsley if preferred)
  • 1 ½ tbsp tamari or soya sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 3 tbsp protein powder (soya bean or pea)
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp ground chia seed
  • 35g sundried tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
  • ¼ tsp salt and black pepper to taste

Method:

  • In a food processor or blender, mix together the oats and chickpeas. Pour contents into a large bowl.
  • In the same food processor or blender (no need to wash), add the remaining ingredients and whizz. Pour into the bowl containing the oats – chickpea mixture. Mix well.
  • Using your hands, mould the mixture into 5-6 large patties.

  • Chill for 20 minutes or overnight to firm up.
  • Pan fry in a little coconut oil for 7-8 mins, or grill or barbeque for 10-12 mins, turning half-way through to cook both sides. Serve. I love serving mine with guacamole and lots of fresh salad.

Variations:

  • Include 30g of goji berries for a nutrient boost
  • Spice it up! Curried chickpea burgers. Add 1 tsp of ground coriander, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1tsp, ½ tsp turmeric and serve burgers with minty yogurt
  • Try with different pulses. Black beans and cannellini beans also work well.
