Veggie Burger Recipe

 

The Domestic Bliss Blog Title Image

A delicious and easy veggie burger recipe with a crumbly texture. These homemade veggie burgers make for a quick, high protein meal that’s low in carbohydrates and high in flavor. Garbanzo bean burgers can be made from either canned or home cooked beans. Fragrant chopped vegetables and herbs in this veggie patty recipe in combination with some tasty sauces punch up the flavor of the chickpeas.

Assemble Them By Hand

Crushing the beans by hand, rather than using a food processor to mush all the ingredients together, creates a better, more crumbly texture. Try mashing the beans with the dome, adding the other ingredients, and then kneading the mixture for half a minute or so to help them stick together.

These chickpea patties can be vegan too, simply by leaving out the egg. They will hold together well enough to bake and fry without any egg — though it helps to knead the mixture with the dome to stretch the proteins and help them adhere better. This recipe makes four large veggie burgers.
