A delicious Chickpea Veggie Burger packed with vegetables and whole grains for a healthy satisfying burger! 


Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chickpeas (from a can)
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked.
  • 1/2 cup One Degree Organic sprouted rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 egg, or 3 tbsp of auqafaba (chickpea liquid from the can)
  • 12 tbsp oil for frying


  1. Heat the avocado oil in a pan on medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes, then add the garlic, carrots, and cauliflower and let cook for 6-8 minutes. 
  2. Add the veggies to a food processor with the rest of the burger ingredients and pulse until combined, but still has some texture.
  3. Use your hands to shape into 6-8 patties then place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set. 
  4. Heat some oil a large pan on medium-high heat then place your burgers in the pan. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes. 
  5. Serve in a bun with your favourite toppings. 


I like to eat these burgers with some pickled cabbage and mashed avocado

Don’t over pulse the burgers. You want them to still have some texture and not be a paste. 

For a vegan burger, use 3 tbsp of aquafaba (chickpea liquid) in place of the egg. 

For a gluten-free burger, use your favourite gluten-free bun or enjoy this burger with no bun at all
