I could eat veggie burgers every day. Delicious, filling, and nourishing, the right veggie burger can really help you get the most out of your day. Unfortunately, it seems like finding the right gluten free and vegan veggie burger can be quite the adventure…until now! If you’re a hummus lover, this veggie burger is for you! And if you’re not yet the hummus connoisseur, you’re about to be! 

There’s no need for a food processor when you make these delightful veggie burgers! Just mash all the ingredients together and you’ve got a supremely tasty burger that will satisfy the hungriest of diners. What’s better than delicious, vegan and gluten free? Delicious, vegan, gluten free and EASY! 

Serve them simply on a bed of greens or all dolled up with veggies! Just don’t forget a bun from Columbia Gorge Bakery! Available at the bakery drive-thru window now! :)


Vegan Hummus & Chickpea Burger

A deliciously simple vegan and gluten free veggie burger!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 20 mins


  • 1 cup rolled oats not quick cooking
  • 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1/3-2/3 cup prepared hummus homemade or store-bought
  • 1/4 cup finely diced yellow onion
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • Add all ingredients except olive oil to medium bowl, starting with 1/3 cup hummus.
  • Using a fork or potato masher, mix all ingredients together, mashing chickpeas as you go (leave some whole for texture).
  • If the mixture isn't holding together, add more hummus. You want the mixture to hold together easily when squeezed, but not too wet.
  • Divide the burger mixture into fourths. Using your hands, form four patties about 4 inches across. I like my patties thinner, so they crisp up and cook thoroughly faster.
  • Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. When hot enough, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the burgers. They should sizzle when they hit the pan.
  • Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately on a Columbia Gorge Bakery gluten free hamburger bun. :)
