think in the box

It's starting to feel like summer around here and this fresh summer salad topped with a veggie burger is sure to cool you off! 

  • 2 cups of canned chick peas

  • 1 stalk of celery, diced

  • 1 small carrot, grated

  • 1/2 onion, minced

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 cup of all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil




1. First drain the chickpeas and save 4-5 tablespoons of the chickpea liquid. 

2. In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas 3 to 4 times. If you don't have a food processor mash the chickpeas with a fork or potato masher. The chickpeas should be crumbled, not mashed. 


3. Next put the chickpeas, celery, carrot, onion, garlic powder, flour, salt and pepper into a bowl. Mash well until combined. 

4. Add in 1 tablespoon at a time of the chick pea liquid into the patty. This helps to combine everything into a patty!

5. Form patties and place onto a baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes or until firm.

6. Heat the oil in the skillet. Place the patties carefully into the skillet. Cut 3-5 minutes on each side until golden.

7. Place on bun or on top of a fresh salad! Dress up however you like or with some fresh taziki sauce!
