trinityskitchenHere it is… my “Chickpea (garbonzo bean) & Mushroom Burger” recipe.

This is an excellent way to enjoy a super healthy, high-protein, vegan, gluten-free meal, whilst using optimal plant-based ingredients. I’ve created this version to be pleasantly moist on the inside with a lovely soft crisp on the outside; so that you can enjoy it with OR without the addition of a sauce. It works wonders with a salad or potato wedges; or in a bap with salad/sauce toppings. If you want more vegan recipe using chickpeas, you can try out CookingPlanit's kale and crispy chickpeas. This recipe is so easy to make and is truly delicious!-…


  • 240g (9oz) chickpeas (about 1 tin drained weight)
  • 2 level tablespoons gram flour (chickpea flour)
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 75g tasty mushrooms (small handful)
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • Half teaspoon sea salt
  • Half medium sized apple
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary (finely chopped)
  • 1 medium sized tomatoMashing the chickpeas...Mashing the chickpeas…
  1. Crush garlic, dice onion and chop the mushrooms into small pieces; saute together in a pan for a few minutes.
  2. Roughly mash chickpeas in a large mixing bowl with a potato masher or fork. This involves a bit of work to really get in there! The mash doesn’t have to be totally smooth, although you do need to give it a good pressing through so that a lot of it is quite mushy. It’s fine to leave a few rustic looking pieces.
  3. Grate the half apple (including skin).
  4. Add the gram flour, tahini, salt and apple and mix all together using the back of a metal spoon (to press down and help support the binding process).
  5. Finely chop the rosemary and chop tomato into small pieces.
  6. Add the sauteed items along with all remaining ingredients into bowl, pressing down and mixing thoroughly with a metal spoon.
  7. Divide into 4 and firmly shape and mould into patties.Pop 'em under the grill (broiler) to cook...Pop ‘em under the grill (broiler) to cook…
  8. Place onto a grill tray and heat under a medium grill for approximately 8 minutes on each side (or until nicely tanned).


Created deliciously moist on the inside with a gentle crisp on the outside.
