For the Burger Patties

  • 1 15oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed ( 1 ¾ cup)

  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley or 1 tsp dried
  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  • ¼ cup diced red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup hot sauce like Franks Red Hot brand
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Slaw

  • 1 cup shredded cole slaw mix cabbage/carrot mix( available at most grocery stores, or 1 cup sliced green cabbage)
  • 1 stalk celery diced

For the Ranch Dressing

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp dried dill
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard optional
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon
  • Salt to taste

Serve with:

  • Hamburger buns lettuce and any other burger fixings you desire. Also great served with carrot/celery sticks( for dipping in extra Ranch dressing).


  • Combine chickpeas, oats, parsley, and garlic powder in a food processor or blender and pulse until well combined. Mixture should look chopped but not mushy/wet/paste-like.
  • Add shredded carrots, red bell pepper, hot sauce, egg, salt and pepper to the food processor/blender and pulse to combine. Mixture should look chopped but not mushy/wet/paste-like. Form ¼ of the chickpea mixture into a ball and then flatten with thumbs to create a burger patty. Repeat until all 4 burgers have been formed.
  • Cover and refrigerate the burgers while making the Ranch dressing and slaw. This helps the burgers to firm up and helps them stay together when cooked.
  • Combine cole slaw mix and celery in a medium bowl. In a small bowl mix together ingredients for the Ranch dressing. Add 1-2Tbsp Ranch dressing to the cole slaw mix and mix thoroughly. You will have extra Ranch dressing to put on the burger if desired (or to dip carrot sticks/celery sticks) .
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil/avocado oil in a large skillet ( or use non-stick spray) over medium-high heat. When hot, add burgers and let cook for 3-4 minutes or until burgers become golden brown. Flip over and repeat.
  • Serve on hamburger buns with extra ranch dressing topped with Ranch slaw mixture. Or for a lower carb option serve over a bed of lettuce with extra ranch dressing.
