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.

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!

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.

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
  • 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
