Curry chickpea burgers

Need a healthy summer dinner?

These are so easy. And so tasty, I ate them plain. Although I'm willing to bet they'd be even better on a bun with some fixins.

1.5 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup regular oats
10 baby carrots or 2 carrots
1 tbsp coconut oil (or oil of your choice), melted
1.5 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Tumeric
1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt, to taste
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp Parsley flakes (optional)
3 tbsp sunflower seeds

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper and set aside. In a food processor, process the oats, carrots, and all the spices/seasonings (sea salt, black pepper, curry, paprika, tumeric, ) for 30 seconds or until somewhat smooth. Now add in the chickpeas at 1/2 cup increments and coconut oil (melted), stopping to scrape down the bowl as necessary. Once the chickpeas are mostly processed and smooth, take the mixture and place in a medium sized bowl. Stir in the sunflower seeds. Wet your hands and shape patties. Makes about 6-8 patties depending on how big you want them. Note: You can also pre-bake these for about 20 minutes and them pop them on the BBQ to finish them off.


  1. Love this. No joke, I'm literally eating a warm curry quinoa and chickpea salad as I type this. This looks so delicious and I bet would taste like heaven between two pieces of warm bread.

  2. this is very interestiiiing :))


  3. Flavors sound great, and it looks like they hold together pretty well. I find you have to keep most veg patties thicker than I'd prefer to keep them held together, but these look like the perfect shape and size.

  4. i'm trying these this afternoon.
    i'm sure they'll be delish :)

  5. These sound so good (and good for you). When this post showed up on Google Reader I thought they were cookies from the picture :P Not cookies, but still they look so good.

  6. I want have to know more and more, on your blog just interesting and useful information.
