If you are following the WW Freestyle plan each pattie is 4 Smartpoints. If you choose to use a bun, add the points accordingly.

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.

Dress up your own veggie burger with lettuce, tomato, and onion! Or whatever toppings you would normally eat when making traditional burgers.

If you hate pattying out burgers, which I really do, you can get this little gadget to make perfect burgers every time! Along with this budget-friendly food processor, which is a life changer for under 50 bucks!

Don't forget that you can make chickpea veggie burgers in the air fryer too!! Keep scrolling for instructions!

If you LOVE veggie burgers be sure to try these black bean burgers or the mushroom veggie burger!

Tips for Making Chickpea Veggie Burgers

  • If you want to add cheese and are following Weight Watchers, use fat-free for zero points
  • Here is my favorite food processor to use!
  • Feel free to use other seasonings, such as garlic powder, onion powder, or pepper
  • If you need to make the chickpea veggie burger gluten-free, change the flour and breadcrumbs to gluten-free
  • Trying to get these on the grill may be a little difficult because they are softer than meat patties, so if you do use a grill pan
  • Wanna freeze chickpea veggie patties? Just separate with parchment paper, or use a food saver.Spinach and Chickpea Veggie Burger Recipe

Making Spinach Chickpea Veggie Burgers in the Air Fryer

  • Preheat Airfryer to 350
  • Cook chickpea veggie patties for 5 minutes on 350
  • Flip, then cook for 3 more minutes

Tips for Making Chickpea Veggie Burgers in the Air Fryer

  • Use parchment paper to line air fryer, this makes the burgers mess-free and nonstick. Plus these liners are made specifically for the air fryer so they are slotted and already cut for size!
  • Times and temperatures may vary depending on model of the air fryer.
  • If you have frozen patties be sure to cook them a little longer.
