Servings 7 burgers


  • Food processor


  • 15 oz canned chickpeas - rinsed and drained
  • 1 clove of garlic - peeled
  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup flour - all-purpose or whole wheat
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ¼-1/2 cup fresh parsley - or cilantro
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup zucchini - shredded


  • In a food processor, process together the chickpeas and garlic to a coarse texture. Transfer to a medium-large bowl.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (including the ¼ cup of water) and combine using a spoon. I love to also use my hands to press on the ingredients and make sure the mixture is uniform.
  • Let the mixture sit for 20-30 minutes.
  • Then, shape in 7 patties using your hands. Gently press on them to make sure they are tight.
  • Warm up a large non-stick pan. I like to use a tiny amount of oil that I spread with a brush (it helps the patties brown nicely), but this is optional. Roast the patties for about 5-7 minutes on each side or until golden brown. When done, add an additional ¼ cup of water (or veggie broth) to the pan over the patties and flip them while there is some liquid (so both sides are in contact with it). The patties are ready when the liquid is gone and it dried out (should take about 1 min)
  • Serve with your favorite burger fixings. Enjoy!



  • Store the cooked patties in the fridge for up to 4-5 days (covered container). Simply reheat in the microwave when ready to eat or even better, warm up in a pan for a few minutes for best texture. If it seems like they dried up a bit, then don't hesitate to add a little water to the pan to add some moisture back in.  You can also store the uncooked patties in the fridge (in a covered container too) and roast them as described when ready to eat.
  • Do not skip the 20-minute resting time, it is important for final texture.
  • Don't press on the patties when roasting them so they don't break.
  • The patties can shrink a bit while cooking, so be sure to shape them big enough (at least the size of your bun).
