Sweet & Spicy Chickpea Burgers

This recipe is both easy to make with minimal ingredients and makes some of the best Vegan burgers I’ve ever tasted. They’re so good and very filling thanks to the chickpeas and rice.

The method couldn’t be easier. Blend the ingredients together in a blender and form into patties. Easy as that.

The best thing about this recipe is that you can freeze some of the patties and cook them from frozen at a later date.

This original recipe is by ‘Naturally Stephanie’ a beautiful, very athletic Vegan lady. If you don’t already know of her check her out on youtube here. She made these burgers in one of her videos and then placed the recipe on her blog here. This slight variation includes the calories for my own reference and a few tweaks but all the credit should go to Naturally Stephanie so make sure you check her out. 

If you enjoy this recipe how about something for dessert like the Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. Or, for something a little lighter try these Raspberry Coconut Bites.
