For the first few weeks into my 30 day vegan challenge, I had this intense feeling of FOMO when it came to letting go of the usual dishes I have grown up with and burgers were one of them. At first, I found it rather hard having to give up my usual junk food treats such as pizza, burgers and desserts, but I soon realised that you can make a vegan alternative to nearly EVERY single dish.
So here’s my take on an easy, cheap, simple, healthier version of a burger:
- 1 tin (425 grams) chickpeas
- 1 tin (425 grams) blackbeans
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 1/2 tbsp himalayan salt (or regular table salt if needed)
- 1 tbsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp olive oil
(If you don’t have any of the above seasonings, just add whatever seasonings you fancy!)
1. Blend 1 cup of oats in a blender until it reaches a flour consistency.
