Baked Chickpea Curry Burgers

Burgers are the easiest thing to feed our 18 month old, Cash. He refuses to eat with a fork or spoon, just wants to hold it in his hand and use the opposite hand to shovel in food! ;-)

Burgers are easy for me too since I don’t have a ton of time to prepare my meals during the day. I just throw one of these in my collard wraps with Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Cashew Cheese, leftover quinoa, shredded veggies, lentil sprouts and avocado. Sometimes I top it with Habanero Sauce or an oil-free dressing I have in the fridge. I have a ton of different burgers recipes but these are one of my favorites!!!

Original recipe from VegKitchen.com

INGREDIENTS

  • Water or veggie broth for sauté
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1 large celery stalk, chopped
  • 15 0z can chickpeas, drained and rinsed OR 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free seasoning blend (such as Spike or Mrs. Dash – I use Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute)
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder – I use Kashmiri Curry, my fav!!!
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup hummus (any flavor will do – I use Our Favorite Hummus)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sauté chopped onion over medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic, carrot and celery and sauté until all the vegetables are tender and golden.
  3. Combine the vegetable mixture with the remaining ingredients in a food processor. Pulse on and off until the mixture is evenly and finely chopped, but don’t puree.
  4. Drop by heaping 1/4 cup portions (I used my large ice cream scooper) onto a baking sheet lined with baking parchment paper and flatten/shape gently. Bake for 30 minutes, flip over and continue to bake for 10-15 minutes or until they’re done.
Saute onion, garlic, celery and carrot until soft and add them with all other ingredients to processor

    Hi
    If I want to use dry chickpeas,do I have to cook them or do I grind them after just soaking them?
    I am pretty sure,this will be a huge hit in my house.
    Thanks

    • You’d have to cook them first. Do you have a pressure cooker? That’s how I cook mine each week, best tool ever!!!
