Another reason for adding chickpeas to my diet is to curve my meat intake daily.

Except for this recipe, of course, I don’t think you need curry for this dish, haha.

How to Make Chickpeas Burger Patty

When I first made these burgers, I had fried them in oil. 

However, I’ve come to enjoy it better baked in the oven. I’ll share with you the steps to do both!

Steps for Frying Burger: 

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan and sauté onion and garlic for 1 minute. Then, set aside. 
  2. Add chickpeas, cooked onion and garlic, cumin, salt, flour, escallion, thyme leaves, all-purpose seasoning, and jalapeño powder in a food processor or high-power blender until it forms a burger batter dough. 
  3. Sprinkle flour onto a baking tray and your hands. Using a spoon, scoop the batter into 4-5 sections and form a ball from each. If the batter is too sticky, add more flour to better form the ball. 
  4. Using your hands or rolling pin, flatten each ball and shape it into a patty —place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to be firmed.
  5. Heat oil in a large frying pan, and fry each burger patties for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Turn at 5-minute intervals to prevent burning and help cook evenly.
  6. Serve on a burger bun and topped with your favorites: lettuce, tomato slices, and sauce of choice. 

Notes: For an even crispier patty, bake these after frying them. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Steps for Baking in the Oven: 

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan and sauté onion and garlic for 1 minute. Then, set aside. 
  2. Add chickpeas, cooked onion and garlic, cumin, salt, flour, escallion, thyme leaves, all-purpose seasoning, and jalapeño powder in a food processor or high-power blender until it forms a burger batter dough. 
  3. Sprinkle flour onto a baking tray and your hands. Using a spoon, scoop the batter into 4-5 sections and form a ball from each. If the batter is too sticky, add more flour to better form the ball. 
  4. Using your hands or rolling pin, flatten each ball and shape it into a patty —place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to be firmed.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  
  6. Place each burger patty on a greased baking tray and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip halfway through baking. 
  7. Remove from oven and serve.  

You can even GRILL your burgers as if they were regular beef burgers!

Tips for Making Chickpeas Burger Patty

  • If you prefer firmer patties, you can bake them in the oven after frying. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius. 
  • Adding carrots, sweetcorn, and other ingredients can give your burgers more color and flavor to shake things up. 
  • You can find steps to cooking dried chickpeas for this recipe here or use canned chickpeas. 
  • Prep time doesn’t include time spent cooking dried chickpeas. I usually use Goya dried chickpeas that I pressure cook to soften them ahead of time and store them for future use. 

Storing and Re-heating Tips

Store uncooked patties in foil or parchment paper separately in the freezer for easy storage and meal planning. Perfect for a quick-in-the-week lunch or dinner.

Keep leftover burgers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. 

Reheat each patty in the oven for 5-10 minutes or 1-2 minutes – in the microwave.
