  • food processor
  • grill or stove
  • skillet


  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 25 ounce can of chickpeas drained
  • 1 ¼ cup oat flour
  • 1 large onion – minced
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ½ cup of spinach
  • ½ cup of baby carrots
  • ½ red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • Pepper to taste


  • Add all of the ingredients, EXCEPT the onions and the oil, to a food processor and blend until the mixture is firm and moldable. Transfer to a medium size bowl and stir in the onions.
  • For 3 and ½ inch burgers measure out ⅓ of a cup of the mixture and roll into a ball, then flatten into a round patty.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add patties to the pan and cook until golden brown and then flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
  • Add the other tablespoon of oil if needed.


  • For best results, refrigerate the patties for an hour before cooking. This will help them set so they stay together. 
  • Taste the burger batter and add more spice if you like. 
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 
  • Freeze uncooked patties for up to 3 months, thaw in the refrigerator and cook as directed.
