spicy vegan chickpea burgers

Tweaked from Minimalist Baker.

Truly the best vegan burger ever.


1 can chickpeas

5 oz green chilis

3 shallots

4 cloves of garlic

1/2 crushed tortilla chips (I used organic & gluten free)

1 lime

1 handful cilantro

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp extra hot red chili powder

1 tsp green chili powder

4 tbsp avocado oil


1 ripe avocado

1/2 cup onion

1 jalapeño

1/4 cup hot salsa (green mountain gringo hot salsa is my favorite!!)

1/4 cup cilantro


1. Mince garlic and shallots and cook for 2-3 minutes.

2. Move cooked garlic and shallots into large bowl and add chickpeas (drained & rinsed), crushed tortilla chips, green chilis, cilantro, lime juice, avocado oil, cumin, & red/green chili powders.

3. Mash all the ingredients together with a fork until mixed. If mixture isn't moist enough for patties add more avocado oil.

4. Make sure the mixture is evenly pressed down in the bowl then cut into 4 sections (make line down center with fork horizontal then vertical.

5. Roll each section into a ball then press down to make a patty.

6. Heat cast iron on medium then add avocado oil. Once hot add your patties and let cook for about 5 minutes on each side.

7. Let cool then add your toppings! (I had mine on a bed of roasted kale & my boyfriend had his on a bun!)
