Lynne and I are huge fans of making our own healthy burgers and these chickpea burgers are just one of the kinds we make.

I’ll be aiming to add those other healthy burgers we make here on Neil’s Healthy Meals so please check out the burger recipe section regularly.

These burgers are an ideal, low cost alternative to meat burgers.

Generally tins of chickpeas are much cheaper too, I find.

Plus these burgers, once cooked are great for freezing.

They’re easily re-heated in the oven from frozen.

Ingredients
  • Low fat cooking spray
  • 2 medium onions finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves , crushed
  • 2 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 250 g chestnut mushrooms finely chopped
  • 1 lime , juice and finely grated zest
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 x 410g can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 75 g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Wholemeal burger buns / rolls of your choice
Instructions
  1. Spray a large frying pan 5 times with the low fat cooking spray, sauté the onion and garlic until soft; adding drops of hot water should the mixture begin to stick.
  2. Add the curry powder and stir it in for 1 minute then add the mushrooms and lime juice and cook for about 5 minutes. Season to taste and set aside to cool.
  3. Mash up the chickpeas with a potato masher until broken up but still slightly chunky.
  4. Mix the chickpeas together with the cooled mushroom mixture and add the lime zest, breadcrumbs and chopped coriander.
  5. Shape the mixture into 4 or 6 burgers (depending on your burger roll size) and place them onto a lightly floured plate, cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Longer is better (4 – 6 hours) as the flavours will marinate more.
  6. Once ready to cook, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook burgers on each side until they are a golden colour.

Place the chick pea burgers in burger buns / rolls of your choice with sliced tomatoes.

I like to serve my burger with a tasty side salad of iceberg lettuce, cucumber and tomato and a little tomato ketchup and lighter mayonnaise relish on the side.

The dish provides you with 451 calories per chick pea burger, excluding the bun, and is certainly extremely filling; hence I find there is no need for any chips or potatoes to go with it! However, my wife does love her chips, so if you’re looking for a suggestion for that, sweet potato chips go perfectly with this!

    Hi Whitney 🙂

    Thank you so much for taking the time to explore my site! I love your Sunny Citrus Smoothie recipe. 🙂

    Minnesota, your home is somewhere that we would love to visit one day!

  2. Neil, this recipe is fabulous, as are all of yours. I find it hard to convince Mr Manning to do without meat in any meal but I reckon this might do the trick! Might make it part of my Easter weekend.

    Keep it up, I love drooling over your blog.

      Thanks Ellen! These chickpea burgers do have a really “meaty” taste about them, so if you get a chance to make them for Mr M, I’m really hoping that he likes them. 😀

      I was brought up in a Naval family where it was “meat and 2 veg” for most meals. I understand it’s not easy to transition to having more vegetarian options. But I must admit we do eat a lot more fish and vegetables now, it did take time though!
