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.

This insanely delicious Chickpea Quinoa Burgers recipe is absolutely packed with plant-based protein and is super easy to prepare.


  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of warm water
  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup of cooked chickpeas
  • 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
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add the flaxseed meal to a small bowl. Add the water and mix well. Set in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  2. 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 
  3. Form into 6-8 burgers.
  4. 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, 
  5. Place the finished burger on your favorite toasted bun, load on the toppings (lettuce, tomato, avocado, hot sauce, etc..), and ENJOY!
