Lighten up your typical burger order with this Falafal Chickpea Burger recipe that delivers flavorful vegan burger patties with 14 grams of protein each.



  • 15 oz canned chickpeas
  • 1 medium Yellow Onions
  • 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp Organic Ground Cayenne Red Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parsley
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 4 whole-wheat English muffin
  • 2 cups Purple Cabbage Chopped
  • 2 tbsp LEMON Juice, Fresh Squeezed


1 Preheat the oven to 400°F. Add the chickpeas, onion, flour, garlic, cumin, coriander, salt, and cayenne to a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles lumpy hummus. Stir in the parsley.
2 Form the mixture into four balls; place onto a large unbleached parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Pat with your fingertips into four (4-inch-diameter) patties. Brush the patties with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Bake for 30 minutes.
3 Gently flip over each burger, brush with another 1 tablespoon of the oil, and bake until crisped, firm, and well browned, about 10 minutes more.
4 Thinly spread the tahini on the cut surfaces of the English muffins. Place each falafel burger patty on the English muffin bottoms.
5 Toss the cabbage with the lemon juice and add on to the burgers. Add the English muffin tops. (Hint: Additional suggested toppings include hot sauce, bread-n-butter pickle chips, and tomatoes.)
