Let’s raise a glass to my very first vegan burger recipe on my blog!
It is kind of hard to believe I have never made one, but I think one of the main reasons is because, generally speaking, I am not a big veggie burger person.
Yes, I do enjoy them at restaurants, but I am also very picky plus I kind of have a soft spot for Beyond Meat.
However, this burger recipe is one I created through a brand partnership and I loved it so much that I thought I would adapt the measurements a little bit so that you can make this recipe at home!
First things first, these guys are quite filling (which in my opinion is a great thing!). They are made with a mixture of chickpeas, kidney beans, quinoa and corn and therefore have lots of protein. Plus, not only will these guys keep you full longer, they are also super flavorful. And no — the flavor is not all coming from the garnishes. A lot of it is coming from all the delicious spices in the patties themselves: the chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, smoked paprika and fresh coriander all come together to elevate these patties to the next level.
Here are the key steps of the recipe:
Make the guacamole
Simply mash the avocado in a bowl and season it with lime juice, garlic powder, salt & pepper.
Pulse the chickpeas, kidney beans and fresh coriander
Use a food processor to mash the chickpeas and kidney beans together with the fresh coriander.
Cook the onion and garlic
Cook them both with a little bit of oil until the onion is starting to brown.
Make the patties
Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix to combine. Divide into 4 patties.
Cook patties on both sides then cook to firm up
Enjoy on toasted burger buns and with your favorite garnishes including the guacamole made earlier.
Well… On that note, I hope this is not the last burger you see on my blog! I had a lot of fun creating (and especially eating!) this recipe so if you give it a try and like it as much as I do, please let me know.
If you do end up making these Chickpea and Kidney Beans Tex Mex Burgers, be sure to share it on social media and tag me (@muriellebanackissa).
Have a wonderful week my friends!
