Vegan Hummus Chickpea Burgers

It snowed yesterday and now it finally feels like winter. Though I am not particularly fond of the cold and the snow, I quite like looking at it from the comfort of our warm home. Yesterday we also learned, that our cat, who is spending his first winter with us, quite likes playing in the snow, but only for like 3 minutes, and then, he’s meowing at the door to be let in again.

So on such a white day, it seems fitting to bring a little color on the plate at least, with these cute-as-a-button Vegan Hummus Chickpea Burgers.

I mean, the colors!

Chickpea patties:

  • 250 grams chickpeas (canned or cooked)
  • 1 onion
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup parsley
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbs all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Beetroot Hummus

  • 1 cup chickpeas (canned or cooked)
  • 2 cooked beets
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Burger ingredients:

  • 5 lettuce leaves
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 cucumber (or some pickles)
  • 4 tbs cocktail sauce
  • 5 small burger buns


  1. Prepare chickpea patties: peel and slice onion and place in a food processor. Add chickpeas, chopped garlic and parsley, salt, pepper, smoked paprika and cumin. Blend together. Then, add in flour and baking powder, mix in by hand until a dough-like texture forms and place in fridge for about an hour.
  2. Prepare beetroot hummus: if using raw beets, place in a pot of water and cook until fork-soft. Drain and cool down, then peel, cut into quarters and place in a food processor. Add drained cooked chickpeas (or use canned), finely chopped garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Blend until smooth, then slowly add in the olive oil, blending as you pour.
  3. Preheat a pan with some vegetable oil. Remove the chickpea dough from the fridge and with your hands shape the dough into patties roughly the size of your burger buns. Add chickpea patties to the pan and on medium heat cook for a couple of minutes, until the bottom side turns crispy and golden-brown. Flip the patties over and cook on the other side for another couples of minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Assemble your burger: cut burger patties in half horizontally and place in the pan inner side down to brown. Then, remove from pan and spread the bottom bun with pink hummus, add red onion slices, a chickpea patty and cucumber slices. Drizzle with cocktails sauce, add a lettuce leaf and top with the burger bun. Serve.


Store any leftover hummus in an air-tight container in your fridge to use through your week.
