Ever since going vegan, I’ve been a fan of making veggie burgers. I must have made 100 different variations of vegan burgers by now, and I’m not even exaggerating. I rarely ever make the same vegan burger twice. I always end up adding a new vegetable, omitting another and switching up the spices. This means I have quite a few recipes written down by now. Today, I’m sharing one of my favourites with you, which is this vegan spinach chickpea burger.
These brugers are jam-packed with protein, fibre and vitamin K. The base is chickpeas and spinach, while fresh basil, garlic, cumin and cayenne pepper brings most of the flavour. I also added lemon juice and applecider vinegar to help bring out the flavour of the spices, and they both help combine the ingredients as well.
Now, these vegan burgers can be served in many different ways. Go the classical way and have them in a bun or on sourdough bread (delicious combo!). If that’s a little too much carbs on carbs for you, try having them with a salad. I’ve personally served them with my Cumin Orange Cashew Salad (also a delicious combo!).
This time, though, I went for the burger bun. I added hummus, spinach, cucumber, tomato, and grated carrot to mine. I’m also positive these would be amazing with guacamole. Go with your favourites or experiment and be creative.
However you decide to serve these burgers, I hope you enjoy them. They’re easy to make, delicious and satisfying. Plus they store well in the fridge and freezer. If frozen, simply reheat them on a pan over medium heat or in the oven for 10 minutes at 150 degrees Celsius.
