Chickpea and Bean Veggie Burgers

These Chickpea and Bean Veggie Burgers are a fantastic and tasty way to enjoy a meatless meal. Quick, easy, and healthy!


Makes 8 patties

1 tin of chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1 tin of beans (black beans, borlotti, kidney or butterbeans – drained and rinsed)
500g peeled and boiled potato
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
8 tbsp breadcrumbs (for coating)
1 tbsp cooking oil


Chickpea and Bean Veggie Burgers – Method

Pack 12 – 13  briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing. Place a couple of firelighters in the bottom section and get that going. When you are ready to cook your burgers place your double-sided cast iron griddle/skottle plate on to the PotjieKing, skottle side up, to heat up. Pour a tbsp or so of oil on and spread it over the surface to make sure it’s covered.

  • Mash the chickpeas and beans together.
  • Add in the boiled potato and garlic and mash it up some more until you get a good consistency.
  • Mix in the salt, pepper, lemon juice and paprika.
  • Divide the mix into 8 and shape them into patties. Coat your hands in a little bit of oil to stop the mix from sticking to you.
  • Coat with breadcrumbs on both sides.
  • Fry on the cast iron skottle plate for about 10 minutes on each side.
  • Be gentle when turning them and don’t press them down as you may break them apart.
  • Once cooked just go ahead and build your burger just how you like it!


Note: Have fun experimenting with the different types of beans and veg combinations. You can use carrots, sweet potato or even pumpkin, Quinoa and lentils will also work really well.
