  4. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook for another 5 minutes on low heat.
  5. Coarsely chop the chickpeas in a food processor with soy sauce, vinegar, and maple syrup.
  6. Finely grind the oats in a blender and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the garlic, quinoa, chia seed mixture, fried onions, chickpea paste, and spices and knead well by hand.
  7. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Rest for 10 minutes, knead again and shape the mixture into four patties.
  8. For the sauce, finely chop the shallot and mix with the other ingredients.
  9. Brush the patties with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and cook over direct heat for 4 to 5 minutes each side.
  10. Cut the burger buns open and warm them on their cut side over direct heat for 1 minute. Cover the bottom half with salad greens, one patty and some cabbage. Top with sauce and cover with the other half of the bun.
