Units Scale

Chickpea Burger Patties

  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 15-ounce canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (use gluten-free if gluten sensitive)
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds (or flax meal)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried coriander
  • 1 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 Tbsp tahini

"Bun" and Toppings

  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup oil-free hummus
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced


Preheat the oven to 400 F (205 C).

Place onion, garlic, and parsley into a food processor and process. Then add the remaining chickpea burger patty ingredients: chickpeas, rolled oats, oregano, ground coriander, ground flaxseed, coconut aminos, and tahini. Process until the mixture is combined and in a dough-like consistency.

Remove the mixture from the food processor and divide it into 4 equal parts. Use your hands to form burger patties.

Place chickpea burger patties onto a parchment- or silicone mat-lined baking sheet. Bake chickpea burger patties at 400 F (205 C) for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Use a spatula to carefully flip burgers mid-way through so they brown evenly on both sides. [Note: If using an air fryer, cook at 400 F (205 C) for 15 minutes; flip burgers halfway through.]

When chickpea patties are done cooking, remove them from the oven or air fryer and set them aside.

Slice iceberg lettuce into "buns." Carefully hollow out the lettuce bun by taking out part of the inside, so the patty fits snuggly into the bun. This makes it easier to handle and catches the saucy goodness from the hummus and tomato. Just eat the part of the lettuce you took out. 😉

Place one chickpea burger patty onto the iceberg lettuce and top with a generous dollop of oil-free hummus, sliced tomato, and sliced onion. Enjoy!

These chickpea burger patties store well in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to four days. They store great in the freezer for up to four months, making them great for meal prep.
