From the author, Lauren Bossi: If you’re looking for a delicious dinner in less than 20 minutes, look no further than these Chickpea Quinoa Burgers.
These veggie burgers are so easy and so. darn. tasty! This week, I accidentally made about 6 cups of quinoa so it’s been all about trying to incorporate it into any recipe I can. Therefore, I made a bunch of these babies as a part of my meal prep for the week. I use them in my sandwiches, broken up on top of a salad, or even just on their own with some tahini dipping sauce.
This recipe provides an easy base that allows you to mess around with the spices any way you please. Hope you enjoy it!
From Plant-Based on a Budget: This insanely delicious Chickpea Quinoa Burgers recipe is absolutely packed with plant-based protein and is super easy to prepare. They are an amazing option for those who are not big fans of black beans or red beans, or who are keen on adding more veggies and plant-based protein to their meals.
If you have a designated batch cooking day, this Chickpea Quinoa Burgers recipe would be a perfect choice. You can batch cook some quinoa to last you the week and then use some of it for these burgers and keep them in the fridge for one or two week dinners.

Chickpea Quinoa Burgers
- 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal

- 1 cup of finely processed chopped veggies (I used kale, onions & carrots)
- 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour or flour of choice
- 1 teaspoon of curry powder
- ½ teaspoon of cumin
- ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add the flaxseed meal to a small bowl. Add the water and mix well. Set in the fridge for 10 minutes.
- In a larger bowl, combine all ingredients to form the burger mixture including your flaxseed meal mixture it’s too dry (depending on which veggies you’re using, you can add a TINY dash of water. You don’t want it to be too wet. If it is too wet and you are unable to easily form patties, add a little bit of flour until you are happy with your mixture. Using a ¼ cup scoop, add your mixture and form your burger patties
- Form into 6-8 burgers.
- In a skillet heated over medium heat, add a drop of cooking oil/spray and cook burgers until each side is golden brown. It should be around 3 minutes per side,
- Place the finished burger on your favorite toasted bun, load on the toppings (lettuce, tomato, avocado, hot sauce, etc..), and ENJOY!

Can I replace the flax seed for something else?
Hi, we at Plant-Based on a Budget haven’t tried out a sub for the flax seeds yet so can’t guarantee the results of a sub. But if you end up trying out a sub, please let us know how it turns out 🙂
Can these be frozen after cooking and cooling, how long do these last in fridge after cooking? Thank you
Do you mash the chickpeas
Hi! Yes – the chickpeas get mashed throughout the process of forming the patties 🙂
OMG…These were amazing. Reminded me slightly of falafel.
I seared these in an oil-coated pan for the crispy exterior and topped it with homemade garlic mayo … so so delicious.
This is my first attempt ever at making vegan burger patties, and was even able to satisfy my carnivore hubby. Definitely added to my meal planning rotation. Thanks so much for sharing.
Wow! That is so amazing to hear! I can’t wait to make these now!
Can these be baked in the oven rather than fried, as I am catering for someone who can’t eat fried food
We haven’t tried that out yet but it should work out! Let us know how they turn out if you end up trying them 🙂
It is delicious, pretty easy and the flavor hold up several days in the fridge so it is a time saver
Gotta love the ability to meal prep these!
This is the 3rd time I’m making them !! They are delicious
How awesome! So glad you’re enjoying them 🙂
