These chickpea burgers are the best meat-free burger you’ll have on your barbecue all summer!

For those of you who are plant-based, or even just looking to reduce your overall meat consumption, these clean eating chickpea burgers are a fabulous replacement for a traditional meat-based burger.

These delicious patties are easy to make with a food processor and can be frozen for quick and easy access during a busy week. You can throw these on the grill frozen and they won’t leave you with a mushy mess in the middle like some meatless burgers. Because who wants mush in their burger? Am I right?

A straight on shot of one of these Clean Eating Chickpea Burgers shows the burger with a glass of red iced tea in a stemless wine glass sitting behind it and a red and white checkered napkin sitting to the right side of the burger.

WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THESE CHICKPEA BURGERS:

  • An excellent plant-based alternative to meat-based burgers.
  • Easy to cook on the grill
  • Freeze well up to 4 months if wrapped well.
  • Can also be cooked in a skillet or baked in the oven.
  • Never mushy in the middle.
  • Won’t fall apart during cooking.
  • Excellent flavor you can taste before you even cook the finished patties! (Because you know you’ll try the mix in your processor. I sure did!)

WHY GO PLANT-BASED?

Despite all the hoopla around low carb diets at the moment, there is overwhelming scientific proof that a plant-based diet is an incredibly healthy approach to nutrition. While holes can be found in any study, the combined results of all these plant-based studies makes it pretty hard to ignore the fact that including more plants in your eating plan is never a bad idea.

These burger patties are filled with fiber, protein and plenty of vitamins and minerals.

    Hi Tiffany.
    I just found your blog. I want to try everything! For these chickpea burgers I am trying to go low carb. Is there a substitute for the breadcrumbs?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Cheryl – Welcome! 🙂 You could try substituting some almond flour, but keep in mind that the break crumbs help soak up a bit of moisture. So your burgers may be a bit more likely to fall apart. Worth a shot though! Maybe make the burger mix and then pull a little bit out to experiment with first before adding it to the entire batch. Let me know how it turns out! 🙂
