Spinach and Chickpea Veggie Burger Recipe

Spinach and Chickpea Veggie Burger Recipe

Naturally Ella has these awesome Chickpea and Spinach Veggie Burgers on her blog. So awesome, in fact, that they inspired me to try my own. However, I’m really picky when it comes to spices, so I changed her recipe up a bit. Instead of onions and oregano, I used crushed red pepper flakes (which I use on everything), and garlic.

I really enjoyed making these burgers! Add some cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo even… dress it up just as you would any other burger, and tell me what you think once you’ve tried them!

  1. These look delicious! I will try these next week then might ask your permission to feature them in my “meat free” newsletter in the Shrinking On A Budget series.

  2. These look great, the soy sauce is an unexpected ingredient. Always looking for more ways to use chickpeas- love em’!

  3. I love chickpeas and never considered using them to make a veggie burger! I think I’ll try this recipe on Memorial Day. Visiting from Stone Gable and a new follower. Would love a follow back!
