Veggie Burgers

I decided to try creating a veggie burger and I did not nail it perfectly because it does have a more crumbly consistency than what I wanted, but after I tried it, I knew I had to share these incredible flavors with you!


  • 1 Can of garbanzo beans
  • 1 Medium onion
  • 2-3 Cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 Can peas and carrots
  • 2-3 Tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tsp sweet barbeque spice
  • 2 Tbsp bold barbeque sauce
  • 1 egg
  • Salt n pep

Place the garbanzo beans in a pot with a lot of water and on high until boiled. Keep on high for 5 minutes then remove from the heat and let them soak for over an hour. Meanwhile, saute an onion until it gets a little brown and add the smoked paprika and garlic. The smoked paprika is really important in this recipe because it gives the burgers this insane smoked barbeque flavor! And it taste like little bacon bits!IMG_4249

Add the peas and carrots (I rinse them first, dunno why, seems like a good idea) and the barbeque spice. After the beans have soaked for at least an hour, it’s very easy to remove the weird outer shell because it floats to the top and if they don’t, squeeze a handful lightly and they pop right out of them.

Dry the beans and mash them up. Intensely. Let out all of that built up frustration! It’s good for ya! Then add the veggies and everything else and mix it altogether. I would try the mixture here to see if it needs more salt or something. Shape into patties, coat in flour and fry in a pan. They are kind of crumbly so flip them gently. If they do fall apart, don’t worry; it still tastes amazing in a taco-crumble-salad, as displayed below. Thank you for stopping by and, as always, have fun in the kitchen! 4EBC9165-2770-41DF-AA3E-35C8C418D274
