These easy to make veggie burgers are bursting with flavour and make an excellent alternative to store-bought versions. Try them on the BBQ for a delicious meal perfect for a summer afternoon.




  1. After draining and rinsing the chickpeas, place them in a bowl and mash them with a fork or pulse a few times with an immersion blender.
  2. Add all the other ingredients to the bowl and use your hands to mix very well.
  3. Form into 6-8 patties.
  4. Cook on the BBQ around 400 F for approximately 10 minutes each side or fry in a pan with some oil for 3-5 minutes per side.
