Zucchini Spinach Chickpea Burgers

Hello my beauties!

Well, with these 'quite' times, and having more time on my hands, I have suddenly felt SO much inspiration to cook NEW recipes, so get excited guys because you’ll be getting a heap more delicious recipes coming to you via my blog and Instagram!

I am totally loving this burger recipe right now. It is really filling, full of flavour, and so easy to make. The addition of the chickpeas gives it a big plant protein hit.

I am really loving ‘meal prepping’ but not in a gym-meals kind of way. More so I am just loving making up big delicious and healthy salads or soups like this burgers and storing it in the fridge for a couple of lunches/dinners throughout the week. This zucchini, spinach, chickpea burger is absolutely delicious and keeps really well for 2-3 days! I think its also really great to have these kinds of meals prepped in case you get hungry and feel like a snack - reach for a small serving of this this instead and you’ll feel SO much more satisfied.


+/- 10 burgers
  • 2 gloves of garlic
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 hands of spinach
  • 1 cup of buckweat flour (or all purpose flour works fine as well if you don’t mind gluten)
  • 1/2 cup of almond flour, and more for finishing off the burgers
  • 1/2 cup of mixed fresh herbs, I used parsley and basil
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp himalaya salt
  • 2 tsp cracked pepper
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast 
  • 1 tsp tumeric *optional
  • coconut oil
  1. Take the zucchini and grate it into pieces, then take it into a kitchen towel and press out any access water.
  2. Add to a blender, in my case hand blender, the chickpeas, grated zucchini and spinach. Blend until combined but not smooth.
  3. Then add the garlic, buckweat flour, almond flour, fresh herbs, nutritional yeast and spices into the blender.
  4. Blend again until combined but not smooth, you want there to speckles of the greens.
  5. On a plate, put on a good layer of almond flour. 
  6. Take the bather (this is supposed to be sticky) out of your blender, form it in burger shape, and roll it into the almond flour.
  7. Place a pan over medium-high heat, add the coconut oil and the burgers.
  8. Fry for around 5 minutes each side, until golden brown.
  9. Remove the pan from the heat and serve the burgers just how it is, or on a burger bun with greens and sauce right away!


I hope you enjoy this recipe! We sure loved devouring it for dinner… AND leftovers the next day!
