Tips For How To Make Chickpea Burgers
- Use your largest frying pan, as you’ll need it to hold all the mushrooms before they sweat down.
- Lightly fry your onion and garlic using cooking oil spray, or 1 tbsp olive oil making sure you don’t burn the garlic.
- Stir in the curry powder for 1 minute, add the mushrooms and lime juice and cook for 5 minutes. Don’t forget to season to taste.
- I mash the chickpeas with a fork then add them to the rest of the ingredients because I like my chickpea burgers with a chunky texture when I bite into them.
- You could add the chickpeas and rest of the ingredients to a food processor instead if you’re not bothered about the texture.
- Dust your hands with a little flour when shaping your patties. Add a bit more flour if the batter is sticking to your hands.
- Make sure you allow sufficient time for the chickpea burger patties to form and marinate the flavours together in your fridge.
- Lightly fry your burgers until cooked through and a golden brown colour.

I’d love to hear what you think of my recipe in the comments below and please do rate my recipe 5* if you like it! 🙂
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- Mash up the chickpeas with a potato masher until broken up but still slightly chunky.
- Mix the chickpeas together with the cooled mushroom mixture and add the lime zest, breadcrumbs and chopped coriander.
- 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.
- 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.
