  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large white onion
  • 2 hot peppers (or 1 jalapeno)
  • 2 scallions
  • 1tbs chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2tbsp parsley
  • 3 tbsp ground oats
  • 2tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 small baked potato
  • 1 dash hot sauce or sriracha


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, add the chopped onion, peppers, garlic and scallions as well as the cumin, parsley, paprika, salt and pepper to 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook until the onion is translucent. Add hot sauce or sriracha
  2. Drain and mix the chickpeas. In a medium bowl mash them with a fork or hands until broken down a bit, but not pasty like hummus.
  3. Add the onion mixture to the chickpeas and mix thoroughly. (Taste to make sure it doesn’t need any additional seasoning.)
  4. Next, add the ground oats to help bind.
  5. Then, mash the small baked potato, combine with the 2tbsp flaxseed and ¼ cup water.
  6. This will help create a solid binder for the burgers.
  7. Form burger sized shapes from the mixture and place on an oiled baking dish or cookie sheet.
  8. Drizzle the tops of the burgers with olive oil before baking at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 25 minutes.
  9. Makes about 3 burgers.


* This is served with baked onion rings, avocado, tomato on rye bread.
