It was not my intention to be writing this quick and easy chickpea burgers recipe. Had I not been in a panic this weekend with the realisation that I was off to a barbeque on Saturday and had forgotten I needed a vegan option, this recipe would not exist.
How I Created my Quick and Easy Chickpea Burgers
It was my friends birthday and we were throwing her a surprise barbeque. It had been planned for weeks, but as I had only figured out my budget for the month a day prior, I was unable to buy anything. However, my lack of time to prepare and funds to shop seemed to have paid off.
I grabbed anything I could from my cupboards that could be made into a suitable barbeque meal and there it was. Quick and Easy Chickpea Burgers. I honestly had no idea how these were going to taste. I made the foolish mistake of blending a portion, which essentially just made falafel. However, I amended it with the rest of the batch and created some squishy patties that when grilled or fried (I wasn’t on cook duty) wowed other guests.
So, without further ado, here is my recipe for quick and easy chickpea burgers.
Quick and Easy Chickpea Burgers (Makes 6)
- 1 can of chickpeas (drained – deshelling is optional)
- 1 can of butter beans (drained)
- 1 cup of sweetcorn
- 1 tbsp cajun spice
- 1 tbsp garam masala
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- 1 squirt BBQ sauce
- 1/2 cup of any flour
This is really simple… Are you ready?
Throw everything into a bowl and mash together. Shape into patties. Grill or Fry on a medium heat until golden brown on the outside. Serve on a bun or with a salad. Now, tuck in!
