Servings 2



  • 1 1/2 cup Cooked Quinoa 1/2 cup dry
  • 1 can Chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoon BBQ Seasoning recipe included
  • 1 tablespoon Ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Flaxseed

BBQ Spice

  • Brown Sugar
  • Smoked Paprika or regular
  • Chili Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder



  • Combine ground flaxseed with 2 Tbsp water. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas. In a food processor, combine the cooked quinoa, chickpeas, panko breadcrumbs, BBQ seasoning, ketchup, flaxseed "egg" and 1 tsp salt. Blend until well mixed, scraping down the sides of the food processor as necessary.
  • Divide the burger mixture and press firmly to form 4 patties, each about 3/4 inch thick. Refrigerate for 15-30 minutes before cooking (optional)
  • In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat add 1 Tbsp oil. Once the oil is hot, add the BBQ chickpea burgers and cook until crisp, about 5 minutes per side.

BBQ Spice

  • Mix well


NO RULE: I smother this burger in BBQ sauce, and mayo, anyway so leaving the spice out would be fine.
*BBQ SPICE: All the ingredients must be at equal parts.
**SEASONING: Any seasoning will do.
