This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

Something many people worry about when transitioning to a more plant based diet is whether they’ll be consuming enough protein. These tasty tofu and chickpea burgers contain 12+ grams of protein per patty as well as plenty of fiber, energizing carbohydrates and immune boosting spices. The burgers have the most incredible texture, are bursting with fresh flavors and go perfectly in a  seeded bun with a side of homemade potato wedges.

Rate this recipe


  • 150g tofu
  • 1x400g tin chickpeas
  • 50g brown rice flour
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 tbsp flax seed (mixed with 4tbsp water)
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 8g fresh coriander
  • pinch salt and pepper
Prep Time


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

  2. Combine the flax seed with the water and leave to thicken up for 5 minutes.

  3. Drain the tofu and dab any excess water off with some kitchen towel.

  4. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to your Ninja Kitchen food processor along with the tofu, now thickened flax seed mixture and all the other ingredients.

  5. Pulse until combined. You don’t want the mixture to be completely, it should still have texture.

  6. Form the mixture into patties (you should make 4-5) and place on a lined baking tray.

  7. Place into the oven to cook for 20 minutes, or until golden brown on the outside.

  8. Serve with a seeded burger bun, tomatoes, lettuce and ketchup!

My love and passion for vegan food was initially inspired by health problems. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and coeliac disease as well as suffering with mental health issues, I realised my diet needed to change drastically. My symptoms were affecting every area of my life, so I began to look at what food I was putting into my body and educated myself on how nutrition has a direct impact on how we feel, physically and mentally.
