Chickpea Burgers

Chickpea Burgers

Adapted slightly from Leah Lenemans Book Vegan Cooking for One. This book is a Great resource!!! I have loved this recipe for a very long time. It is quick and easy t prepare. It initially reminded me of crab or salmon patties and I have always served them without a bun garnished with a nice remoulade sauce.

  • 1/2 can chickpeas well drained and rinsed
  • 1 TBS plain yogurt soy or dairy per preference

  • 1/2 tsp marjoram
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • as required whole wheat flour
  • as required canola oil for shallow frying
  • 1 spring onion chopped


  • Drain and rinse the Chick Peas. Mash them in a bowl.
  • Chop the spring onion finely. Add it to the bowl along with the yogurt, tomato paste, soy sauce or tamari, marjoram and breadcrumbs. Mix well and form into 3 burger patties.
  • Spread a little flour on a plate. Turn the burgers in the flour so that the are coated on each side. Refrigerate them for about 30 minutes (longer if more convenient).
