Vegan Chickpea Burgers

Vegan Chickpea Burgers

These Vegan Chickpea Burgers are a delicious meatless meal for any night of the week! They are packed with flavor from added vegetables, spices, and buffalo sauce. Not only do they taste great, but they are also super easy to throw together and make a quick dinner. Any meat-lover will be happy to have one of these for a change.

Although I am a huge fan of old-fashioned beef burgers, I really enjoy making these vegan patties. Chickpeas are an excellent alternative for a protein-based meal because they are high in protein and have added health benefits. Plus, they are inexpensive to buy, so it’s easy to have them stocked up in the pantry. It makes for a cheap meal that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Also, they are low in calories which even makes them a great snack throughout the day.

Burger Ingredients

  • Canned chickpeas (Garbanzo beans)
  • Red onion
  • Garlic cloves
  • Granulated garlic
  • Paprika
  • Fine sea salt
  • Non-dairy buffalo wing sauce
  • Yellow mustard
  • Panko breadcrumbs

Ingredient Notes

These burgers are so simple to make and don’t require much fuss. There are a few optional ingredients and substitutions depending on preference.

For the onions, I used red onions because they have a nice bright flavor, but yellow or white onions will work just as well.

The buffalo sauce is my favorite flavor of these burgers! It spices up the taste and also helps bind the burgers together. However, if you’re not a fan of buffalo sauce or spicy food, you could easily use a low sugar barbecue sauce in its place. I definitely recommend adding a sauce of some sort because it enhances the flavors. That’s why I also add in a little bit of mustard. I usually use plain yellow mustard, but dijon mustard is another good option.

For a gluten-free version of these burgers, you could replace the panko with gluten-free panko, or even gluten-free oat flour.

Recipe Equipment

  • Blender
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Large skillet
  • Spatula

To blend the chickpeas, you really only need a basic blender, but my favorite one to use is my Ninja blender. It blends everything so easy and cleaning it takes no time at all. So, if you don’t have a quality blender, I highly recommend buying the Ninja that I have.

Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t have a blender or food processer, you could mash the chickpeas with a fork or potato masher. It will take longer, and the mixture won’t be as fine as if it’s blended.
  • Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
  • The patties can also be frozen by putting them on a baking sheet after they are done cooking. Once they’re completely frozen, transfer them to a ziplock freezer bag. Reheat them in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-10 minutes.

    These look amazing and so full of flavor. The addition of the hot sauce just takes it avker the tops. So delicious.
