Hummus Chickpea Burgers [Vegan]




Cooking Time




For the Chickpea Patties:

  • 1 1/4 cup chickpeas (canned or cooked)
  • 1 onion
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup parsley
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

For the Beetroot Hummus:

  • 1 cup chickpeas (canned or cooked)
  • 2 cooked beets
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

For the Burger ingredients:

  • 5 lettuce leaves
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 cucumber (or some pickles)
  • 4 tablespoons cocktail sauce
  • 5 small burger buns


  1. Prepare chickpea patties: peel and slice onion and place in a food processor. Add chickpeas, chopped garlic and parsley, salt, pepper, smoked paprika and cumin. Blend together. Then, add in flour and baking powder, mix in by hand until a dough-like texture forms and place in fridge for about an hour.
  2. Prepare beetroot hummus: if using raw beets, place in a pot of water and cook until fork-soft. Drain and cool down, then peel, cut into quarters and place in a food processor. Add drained cooked chickpeas (or use canned), finely chopped garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Blend until smooth, then slowly add in the olive oil, blending as you pour.
  3. Preheat a pan with some vegetable oil. Remove the chickpea dough from the fridge and with your hands shape the dough into patties roughly the size of your burger buns. Add chickpea patties to the pan and on medium heat cook for a couple of minutes, until the bottom side turns crispy and golden-brown. Flip the patties over and cook on the other side for another couples of minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Assemble your burger: cut burger patties in half horizontally and place in the pan inner side down to brown. Then, remove from pan and spread the bottom bun with pink hummus, add red onion slices, a chickpea patty and cucumber slices. Drizzle with cocktails sauce, add a lettuce leaf and top with the burger bun. Serve.


Store any leftover hummus in an air-tight container in your fridge to use through your week.
