Lovely Chickpea burgers


Last week, I bought falafel balls and they were bad. Yukkes! And then I remembered I have a lovely chickpea burger recipe. So here Im sharing my recipe for  chickpea burgers. You can keep the mix in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days.

For the burgers

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 4 bread buns
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons oats
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon curcuma
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • sea salt  & fresh black pepper to taste

For the tahini sauce

  • 3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper



  • Open, drain, and rinse the chickpeas.
  • Whizz the oats in the foodprocessor and mix until you have oat flour. Put the flour in a bowl.
  • Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor and process for 1 minute. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl, then add remaining chickpeas and all the other ingredients and whizz until you have a mix. If too thick, add 1 other tablespoon of water.
  • Put chickpea mix in the fridge for 30 minutes. 
  • Make for burgers
  • Heat oil in a frying pan until hot. Fry the burgers for 4 mins each side, keeping the heat on medium so they don’t burn. Or bake the burgers in a pre heated oven for 25 minutes.
  • To serve, slice each bun and fill with a slice of tomato, a burger, some cucumber slices, a dollop of tahini sauce.


  • Whizz all the ingredients in a food processor until you have a good consistency.
