  • 1 15oz can – chickpeas, drained & rinsed or 1 cup dry chickpeas, cooked and cooled
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbs ground flax meal and 3 tbs water) set aside
  • 2½ cup – oatmeal
  • ½ cup – shredded carrot
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ½ cup – diced red onion
  • 1 ea – diced jalapeño

  • ½ cup vegan mayo
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar


In a food processor, combine all the ingredients for the burger mix & pulse until smooth yet still chunky texture.

Scoop a handful of the mixture to form the patties to the size of your burger buns. Place in the fridge so burgers will set or freeze the patties.

Preheat oven to 350, place burgers on parchment paper, aluminum foil, or lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until the bottom is browned, turn the burger over, and bake for 10-15 minutes more until browned.

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the slaw mixture, mix together & set aside.


When ready to assemble, toast the bun until golden in frypan, oven or toaster. Top the chickpea burger with the broccoli slaw.
