OMG. This umami chickpea burger is everything. It’s a must-try recipe, especially if you’re bored with beans and quinoa, and looking for a fun way to get your plant protein.
I set out to make a chickpea burger a few weeks ago, with the desire to make something hearty, flavorful, and craveable. Mission accomplished.
I have made this chickpea burger recipe probably 6 or 7 times within the last two weeks. That is how good it is. I’m telling you, best chickpea burger recipe. There is still some texture from the chickpeas, and hidden mushrooms bring a rich, savory, umami flavor. Biting into this umami chickpea burger is seriously satisfying.
Dress it Up Any Way You Like
You can use one to two patties in a burger, or skip the bun and put two or three over spiralized or roasted veggies, salad, or in a Swiss chard leaf with avocado and onion for a chickpea burger burrito. I am not usually a fan of using a lettuce leaf as a wrap, because let’s be honest, that doesn’t sound appetizing, but the burger is so good, it’s actually delicious.
Batch Cook This Bad Boy
This is a perfect recipe to batch cook on the weekend, and use throughout the week. It makes about 6 patties, and I suggest two-three patties (not burgers with the bun :)) as one serving. (Three patties delivers appx. 17 g of protein). You can either cook the patties on Sunday, or just prep them, and then pan-fry them when ready to serve, which only takes 6 minutes. They are also good cold.
