Chickpea Burger With Curried Yogurt Sauce [Vegan, Gluten-Free]





Cook Time



For the Burgers:

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons grated carrot
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs or 2 tablespoons gluten-free rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup cooked white or brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • Salt, to taste

For the Curried Yogurt Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup vegan yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt, to taste


To Make the Curried Yogurt Sauce:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine yogurt, curry powder, lemon juice and salt. Whisk well and set aside for 15 minutes.

To Make the Burgers:

  1. Pulse the chickpeas with the scallions and salt until a chunky mixture forms. If you are using rolled oats, then add them along with the chickpeas here.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chickpea mixture along with basmati rice, grated carrot, dried bread crumbs (omit if using oats), cilantro, and 2 tablespoons yogurt sauce.
  3. Mix well and divide the mixture into four equal parts and form into patties.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a nonstick skillet and gently place the burger. Cook the burger on medium flame, without disturbing, for 3-4 minutes until it is golden and firm. Flip and cook on the other side for another 3-4 minutes until golden. Top with yogurt sauce and a serve with a simple salad.
