These burger came out really, really well and are actually pretty simple to make. You basically just throw it all in a bowl together and mash it up. Just be sure you don’t leave these burgers in the oven too long, or they'll dry out. Enjoy!

For the Burger:

  • 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:

Preparation

  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.

    1. 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!

      1. 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
