Barbecue Chickpea Veggie Burgers with Coleslaw Recipe
Grilling season is officially upon us, which only means one thing: Burgers! If you’re looking for a veggie burger to satisfy everyone, look no further. These barbecue chickpea burgers are satisfying, flavorful, easy to make, and are topped off with a creamy coleslaw to really hit the spot. They’re also jam-packed with healthy, nutrient-rich ingredients like chickpeas, Camelina Oil and Apple Cider vinegar so you won’t feel weighed down after enjoying one (or two).
This recipe is not only perfect for a Saturday afternoon barbecue, but also a Sunday meal prep day. These barbecue chickpea veggie burgers are easy to make in large batches and freeze so that you have a simple meal to cook on a hot summer day when you don’t feel like putting the energy into meal prep. You can even shape them into smaller portions (think falafel), and have them ready to go for wraps, or as a protein-rich addition to your salad. The options are endless.
One of our secrets to the flavor of this burger is from the oil we use. This isn’t just any oil, guys — we’re swapping out the standard vegetable oil for the Three Farmers Camelina Oil. Whether you choose Roasted Onion & Basil or Roasted Garlic & Chili, your food will instantly be infused with the irresistible taste of these oils that will have your guests asking you for your secret recipe. Camelina Oil also offers 4g of Omega-3 in every tablespoon, reduces the risk of heart disease and is rich in antioxidant Vitamin-E.

We’re also giving this veggie burger recipe a kick with Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar in the coleslaw. This apple cider vinegar is Certified Organic, raw, unfiltered, unheated, unpasteurized and 5% acidity, and contains the amazing Mother of Vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is also far from a single use product, and is the most popular vinegar in the natural health community. Choosing a high quality apple cider vinegar like Bragg’s is going to be high in enzymes, help promote digestion, reduce high glucose (blood sugar) levels, and may help improve heart health, settle an upset stomach and promote weight loss.
