To live vigorously and luxuriantly, to flourish

Chickpea Veggie Burger


This veggie burger is quite tasty!  Despite being cooked and therefore void of some of the great nutrients available if consumed raw; this is an excellent alternative to a beef burger.   This burger with lettuce, tomato (heirloom tomato season is a great motivator for me) cashew cheese sauce and raw ranch dressing is QUITE NUTRITIOUS!  We ate it on Ezekiel bread and experienced NO DIGESTIVE UPHEAVAL!

Serves: 6-8


1 BPA free can chickpeas, drained, well-rinsed, and mashed

3 green onions chopped or ½ red onion, finely diced

1 small zucchini, grated

3 T. finely chopped cilantro

3 T. apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar

1 T. siracha sauce

2 T. organic black tahini, regular tahini or almond butter

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp black pepper

½ tsp Himalayan sea salt

1 cup organic quick oats

2 T. olive oil


After draining and rinsing the chickpeas, place them in a bowl and mash them with a fork or pastry knife.

Add all the other ingredients to the bowl.


Use your hands to mix very well.


Form into 6-8 patties.


Cook on the BBQ around 400 F for approximately 10 minutes each side.

You can also fry these in a pan with some coconut oil for 3-5 minutes a side.
