Fox News Features My Recipe For Chickpea Quinoa Burgers

So I woke up this morning... and checked my blog traffic.

It was a tad elevated, so I checked where people were coming from and realized that Fox News is featuring my recipe for Chickpea Quinoa Veggie Burgers on their website. It's also been featured by Meatless Monday and was included in their Meatless Burger E-Cookbook. The version published here is vegan, but feel free to add one egg white to the mix in order to bind them together better.

And if you feel up to it... hop over and help get the rating up on the recipe!

I guess people aren't loving the meatless burger concept over there?

Here's the link to my recipe on Fox News!


  1. Cool! How did the recipe end up on Fox News? Did they approach you about it, or just see it on your site and post it over there? (And, uh, is that ok with you?).

    I love chickpeas and am going more meatless these days. Will check this one out for sure.

    1. Fox News contacted my Meatless Monday editor and asked to use it. It appeared on Meatless Monday and was also featured in their Meatless Burger E-Cookbook. xx Jen

  2. On the fox news recipe last step is transfer veggies to a large mixing bowl. How do you cook them?

    1. Yes, it looks like a mistake on their website. The full recipe can be found here:


      And here are the steps:

      Place the chickpeas, veggie mixture, quinoa, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and yam in a large mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice, cumin, egg white (optional), and hot sauce (optional). Stir with a spoon until well mixed. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.
      Using your hands, shape the mixture into individual patties. Dust each one with flour.
      In a heavy-bottomed saute pan or cast iron skillet that can transfer to the oven, heat the remaining one tablespoon of grapeseed oil over medium high heat. Place the burgers in the pan and cook until nicely browned (about two minutes). Carefully flip the patties.
      Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for another ten to twelve minutes, until the patties are nicely browned on the bottom and cooked through.
      Remove from the oven and serve with or without buns and ketchup. Enjoy!
