I’ve made veggie patties at home many, many times before but they almost almost fall apart. You can imagine how happy I was to find tonights spicy chickpea veggie burgersย sticking together throughout cooking and eating. Not only did they stick together but the taste was awesome! I found myself sneaking bites of the uncooked mixture as I was making the patties. Feel free to sample as you go – no raw eggs or meat involved!

Homemade All The Way

These wonderful patties are an excellent alternative to those store-bought versions that pretend to be veggie burgers. Have you ever read the list of ingredients in some of those products?! Wow! There’s not much resembling vegetables in them and they’re often packed with preservatives, sodium and other additives.

There are a couple of decent store-bought options out there today and you can’t beat them for camping and BBQ’s but if you have the time and are looking for an delicious and healthy homemade option, this is it!

These burgers are much-loved and one of the most popular recipes on the blog with hundreds of excellent reviews. If you need some tips, tricks, recipe substitutions and alternative cooking methods, I’d suggest reading through the comments for reader feedback.

Easy and Flavourful

In addition to being full of flavour, these patties only take about 10 minutes to prep and youย probablyย have most of the ingredients already! Feel free to switch up the spices and flavours as needed but I love the tangy red wine vinegar with the peanut butter, Sriracha and cilantro. It doesn’t quite sound like it should work but it really does, I swear!

Spicy Chickpea Veggie Burgers

In the end I ate this patty on a toasted whole-wheat bun topped with avocado, salsa and lettuce but I had to take a few fancy, pretty pictures first! Tomorrow I’ll eat a few patties over salad for lunch. They will even work as a healthy and filling grab-n-go snack since they actually hold together!

For more veggie burgers, you might like my quinoa beet burgers or lemon tahini burgers. Happy burger eating!
