Helpful Tips For Veggie Burgers 

Food Processor – Pulse 

Make sure you pulse and don’t just allow it to puree. You want to have texture to your veggie burgers, so a few pulses is all it takes. You just want to break up the vegetables a bit. 

Heavy Duty Skillet 

Using a quality skillet is going to allow the oil to heat evenly. This will prevent hot spots and an uneven cook on your veggie burgers. 

Variations to Chickpea Veggie Burgers 


If you don’t want to use brown rice you can use white, Jasmine or any other variety of rice you would like. This is a great recipe to use for next-day rice. 


So I seasoned this with Italian seasoning, but if you would prefer a different flavor you can season with a seasonal salt, Cajun spices, etc. Feel free to flavor as you wish, or do a simple salt and pepper. 

Lettuce Wraps 

Instead of serving your burgers on a bun, lighten it up with lettuce. Use large lettuce leaves to mimic the wrap and dive in! 

Chickpea Veggie Burgers FAQs

How to store leftover veggie burgers? 

Any burgers you do not eat right away can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Just reheat in the microwave or warm in a skillet on the stove. You can also freeze your burgers, for 2-3 months. Then thaw in the fridge overnight or warm it up from being frozen. 

How to make a chia seed egg? 

You will add your chia seeds with the water and allow it to sit and thicken. It is very important to give the mixture time to thicken. This is going to become nice and thick and will act as the binder to hold the ingredients together. 

Does this recipe double well? 

Yes, it sure can be doubled or even tripled. Just make as many burgers as you would like. This recipe makes 4 burgers.
