Chickpea minis

Print Recipe


Makes: 8 slider patties


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained, rinsed, liquid reserved
  • 1 celery stalk, diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup reserved liquid
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • olive oil for frying
  • 8 slider rolls, Vegenaise (or your favorite mayo), lettuce, dill pickle chips, for assembling


  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • lots of freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400Β°.
  2. In a measuring cup, combine the reserved liquid and cornstarch. Whisk until cornstarch is fully dissolved. Set aside.
  3. In a food processor, combine panko, poultry seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Pulse a few times. Dump in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the chickpeas to the food processor. Process until there are no whole chickpeas. Add the celery, onion, and garlic. Process for about a minute. Dump the chickpea mixture into the bowl with the panko mixture.
  5. Add the reserved liquid (add a little more if the mixture feels too dry). Mix well. Form patties using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Dredge in flour mixture.
  6. Lightly fry patties in a skillet lightly coated with olive oil on medium-high heat until golden brown on each side (about 1–2 minutes on each side).
  7. Transfer patties to a baking sheet. Continue cooking in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  8. To assemble the sliders, add some Vegenaise (or your favorite mayo) to 8 slider rolls, top with chickpea patty, lettuce, and 2 dill pickle chips.

Note: I created this recipe because I wanted to try a healthier vegan version of Burger King’s Chicken Minis.
