For the burger

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, minced
  • 1/3 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

For the slaw

  • 2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon blue cheese dressing
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Buns
  • Leafy Greens
  • Extra Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Extra Frank's Hot Sauce
  • Ranch Dressing


  • Add the chickpeas and oatmeal to a food processor. Pulse it a few times to roughly chop the mixture. You want lots of pieces and not a paste. Remove the mixture from the food processor and put it in a medium bowl.
  • Add the carrots, green onion, red bell pepper, hot sauce, egg and spices to the bowl and mix well.
  • Divide the mixture into four equal parts. Use your hands to shape the burger into a ball. Then flatten it into a burger. Put the burgers on a pan and pop them in the fridge. Allow to chill for 15-30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • Make the slaw by tossing the slaw, celery, blue cheese and blue cheese crumbles in a bowl. Store in fridge until ready to use.
  • To cook the burgers use a skillet at medium heat. Use the olive oil to cook the burgers. They will need 3-5 minutes on each side.
  • Assemble the burgers by topping the patties with extra hot sauce and putting them on a toasted bun. Pile the slaw on top and add any extra toppings you'd like!


Serve these burgers with whole wheat buns, extra hot sauce and some bonus blue cheese crumbles.
You can also freeze these burgers by putting them on a baking sheet in the freezer.  Once they are hard, transfer them to a ziplock bag for storage.  To reheat these bake them in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
