Spicy Chickpea Barley and Quinoa Veggie Burger
Our spicy chickpea burgers are a cinch to make. Just whip up the mixture and heat up the patties. You can also freeze them to heat up later: wrap each patty (make sure they've cooled) individually and store in the freezer. You'll never buy premade veggie patties again.

Chickpeas seem to be everywhere lately - and with good reason: they're high in protein, fiber, folate, and zinc. And in a small study, chickpeas have also been shown to aid in weight loss. I love how versatile they are: whether roasted on their own, tossed in a salad, or even used in dessert, chickpeas seem to make every recipe better! See a few of our favorites here.
