Simple Whole Food Ingredients

These delicious veggie burgers are made with a few simple everyday ingredients. They are easy to make, nutritious, and healthy. Here’s what you need:

  • potatoes – I used 3 medium potatoes
  • veggies – I added zucchini, carrot, and onion. You don’t need to peel or drain the zucchini.
  • chickpea flour – it helps bind the burgers so they hold well together
  • flax seeds – use ground flaxseed, not whole flax seeds, it helps to bind the patties
  • spices – you’ll need cumin, garlic powder, oregano, and himalayan salt

How to Store

You can store cooked patties in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 4 days.

Reheat them before eating for a few minutes in a skillet or on a baking tray in the oven. You can also enjoy them cold.

These veggie patties are not suitable for making in advance as the chopped veggies release more water with time. You may need to drain the veggies, add more chickpea flour, or ground flax seed to bind them after that.

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Place the potatoes, zucchini, carrot, and onion in a food processor and pulse for a minute until roughly chopped. Don't over-process it as the veggies will release more water. Leave a few chunky bits and bites, we want the burgers to have some texture.

  • Then, add all the ingredients – chopped veggies, ground flax seed, chickpea flour and spices in a large bowl. Stir until everything is well combined. The mixture should be moist but easy to shape.

You can find detailed instructions with photos in the post above.


    • If your food processor is small, you'll need to work in batches. Sometimes I chop the potatoes, carrot, and onion first, then the zucchini. After that, mix everything in a bowl.
    • If you chop the veggies into very little pieces, they will release more water. If this happens you may need to add more chickpea flour or ground flaxseed to the mixture until it sticks.
    • You have to shape the patties right after you prepare the mixture as it becomes more watery with time.
    • I prefer to grind my whole flax seeds at home in a blender. Then, keep them in a glass jar in the fridge.

    • Hi Rita,
      You can freeze them cooked. Just let cool then store cooked patties in a sealed container or freezer-safe bag for up to 3 months. I’d suggest placing a square of wax or parchment paper between the patties so they don’t stick together.

  1. Can these be made with sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes and still have the same texture?

    • Hi Connie,
      yes, you can try it with sweet potatoes. Just use the same amount as the white ones and I think they will turn out the same.
