Vegan Chipotle Cheese Burger

These vegan crispy “chicken” burgers will be the star of the show, especially when topped with chipotle tomato sauce…



  • Preheat the oven to 200C, tip the chickpeas into a mixing bowl and smash with the back of a fork or a potato masher. Add the olive oil, broth, soy sauce, vital wheat gluten, breadcrumbs and seasonings and mix.

  • Knead the mixture for 2 minutes until firm, divide the chickpea mixture into equal sized balls then press down to make burger patties.

  • Press the burgers down into left over bread crumbs on both sides so the burgers are coated in bread crumbs. Place each burger onto a baking tray and bake for 30 minutes flipping the burgers after 15 minutes. The burgers should be firm, crispy and brown.

Chipotle Sauce

  • Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil until soft, add the chipotle powder, cinnamon and cumin and cook.

  • Add the syrup, vinegar, passata and salt and pepper, cook for a few minutes then whizz the mixture in a blender until smooth.

  • Spoon the chipotle sauce on top of the patties followed by cheese (we used vegan mozzarella). Return to the oven to melt the cheese and serve in burger buns!
