Curry Spiced Veggie Burgers  veggieburger


2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
1 1/2 cups white button mushrooms, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked and drained chickpeas
1 medium carrot, grated (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

(Add some feta cheese (if you’re vegan, add vegan cheese if desired), a gluten free bun (or whatever you like best) tomato, lettuce, red peppers, etc. Anything your heart desires really!)


 1. In a medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat, warm 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the onion, curry powder, coriander, and fennel. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 2 minutes, or until the onion starts to soften. Add the mushrooms. Stir to mix. Cover and cook for about 4 minutes longer, or until the liquid pools in the pan. Uncover and cook for about 3 minutes more, or until the liquid is evaporated.

 2. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the chickpeas. Pulse until well chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Add the carrot, walnuts, cilantro, salt, and pepper and mix well.

 3. Lightly dust hands with flour. Shape the mixture into six 4″ wide patties.

 4. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Place the patties in the pan. Cook for about 4 minutes, or until browned on the bottom. Flip and cook for about 4 minutes longer, or until heated through.

  1. I’m looking for new veggie burgers to try and this sounds wonderful! One thing, though – I’ve never used chickpeas. Can I ask, dumbly, how long do you cook them, and how exactly?

  2. Not a dumb question at all! My boyfriend knows anything medical or science but you ask him how to cook them… you’ll just get a blank stare 😉

    You can make up chickpeas two different ways One way is very simple. Buy them already canned and ready to go! That way, you just need to heat them. There are some great canned organic varieties. I usually use these because of time and convenience. If you have more time though, preparing & cooking chickpeas isn’t hard. First you have to soak them in plain water for about 12 hours before cooking them. Once they’ve soaked, they take about an hour to cook on the stove.

    I hope that helps! 🙂
