Chicken-less Burgers [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan




For the Burger:

  • 1/2 cup chickpeas
  • 1 cup vital wheat gluten flour
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds
  • 1 tablespoon ‘poultry’ seasoning (see recipe below)
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Breading:

  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the Poultry Seasoning:

  • 2 teaspoons ground sage
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground marjoram
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground celery seed


  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F.
  2. Place the chickpeas in food processor and pulse until all are broken up and pasty. Transfer to a mixing bowl and mix well with the remaining burger ingredients. Knead a couple of times with your hand to make sure everything is well combined, then divide into 6 equal portions. Flatten and stretch each piece into burger or schnitzel shapes.
  3. Mix up the breading ingredients in a shallow bowl, then press each burger into mix to coat each side with breadcrumbs, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  4. Cook in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown, flipping half way trough.




Desserts and dinners that really know how to please a crowd. I have spent the last three and a half years sailing around the world as a Chief Cook with Sea Shepherd. On board these strictly vegan ships I have learned so much more about cooking, especially having to please a very hungry crew of sometimes 40 people three times a day, whatever the weather or how much the ship is rolling. While patrolling against illegal fishing in West Africa, I decided to start my vegan recipe blog, The Grumpy Sailor.

Lynne, if you are gluten-intolerant, try making this Gluten-Free Vegan Chicken http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-recipe/gluten-free-vegan-chicken/

I\'m guessing that this might work. Will try this weekend and let you know.
Chicken-Style Seasoning

1 c. nutritional yeast flakes (some people call it brewer’s yeast, but make sure you get nutritional yeast – and certainly not baking yeast!)
2 T. salt
2 T. onion powder
1 T. celery salt
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. sweet paprika
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 ½ T. dried parsley flakes (stir in last)
Pulse in blender all but the parsley flakes, very briefly. (You may use a food processor, but it won’t become a powder as easily.) Stir in the parsley flakes and store in an airtight container in a cool place.

Use 1 1/2 tsp. in a cup of water to make a broth or to replace 1 bouillon cube when making soup. This is fantastic on popcorn, too!

where is the poultry seasoning recipe that is referenced?

05 Mar 2015

Hi Phil - I\'m assuming poultry seasoning refers to a traditional North American spice mix for poultry, which can be found at most grocery stores. If not, you can mix it up yourself and store in a small jar:

2 Tablespoons dried marjoram
2 Tablespoons dried savory
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 Tablespoon dried sage
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 pinch rosemary
1 pinch onion power
