By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes


1 Medium Onion White, Yellow or Brown, Chopped

3 Cloves Garlic

1 tsp Avocado Oil

15 ounce (425g) Can Chickpeas Drained

1/2 tsp Paprika

1/2 tsp Coriander Powder

1/2 tsp Cumin

1/2 cup Fresh Chopped Cilantro loosely packed

3 Tbsp All Purpose Flour use gluten-free for gluten-free version - plus more for rolling**

2 Tbsp Avocado Oil or other oil


1Finely chop the onion and crush the garlic and add to a frying pan with 1 tsp avocado oil and fry until just before they start to brown.

2Drain the can of chickpeas and add the chickpeas to a food processor with the cooked onions/garlic, paprika, coriander powder, cumin, freshly chopped cilantro and flour and process it into a thick burger batter.

3Sprinkle flour over a baking tray and cover your hands with it as well. Scoop the batter out onto the tray in 4 even sections, roll in the flour and form into 4 balls.

4If the batter is very sticky or too wet, add more flour so that it easily forms a ball.

5Take a square of parchment paper, place on top of each ball and press down on it with the bottom of a glass to flatten it into a burger shape.

6Place the baking tray with the 4 burgers into the freezer to firm up for 30 minutes.

7After 30 minutes add 2 Tbsp avocado oil to a frying pan and heat up until hot.

8Add all 4 burgers to the frying pan and fry on each side turning regularly until browned and crispy, roughly 5 minutes on each side.

9If you want your burgers extra firm and crispy you can place on a parchment lined baking tray and bake in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for a further 20-30 minutes.

10Serve on hamburger buns with sliced avocado, crispy lettuce, sliced tomato, ketchup and mustard.
