Total time
Serves: 4
  • For the patties:
  • 1 15 oz. can cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ⅓ cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons peanut oil (or vegetable oil)
  • Handful fresh cilantro
  • Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • For the burgers:
  • Burger buns
  • Mango chutney
  • Butter lettuce
  • Cucumber slices
  1. Cook the quinoa according to package directions; once cooked, let cool slightly.
  2. Add all of the burger ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until everything is combined.
  3. Dust a small amount of flour onto your clean hands and form the ingredients into patties (depending on how large you make them, you'll likely have between 4-5 patties total).
  4. Add the tablespoon of oil to a non-stick pan over medium heat.
  5. Fry the burgers for about 5 minutes per side, checking them occasionally to ensure they don't burn. The burgers should be crisp and golden on each side.
  6. Assemble the burgers on toasted buns with the mango chutney, lettuce and sliced cucumbers.
