Ranch Veggie Burgers

1

These burgers are my easy to put together and SUPER flavorful! They have over 15g of protein thanks to a boost coming from the amazing iWon! Organics protein chips…in this case, the ranch flavor ๐Ÿ˜€

These are super flavorful and also vegan! Though, there will be one ingredient you can choose to use that would made them simply vegetarian ๐Ÿ˜‰

My secret ingredient is really the iWon protein chips…just like my last veggie burger recipe, I crush them up instead of using standard bread crumbs and they add flavor, protein, and are an EXCELLENT binder for the burgers!

INGREDIENTS:

3

  • 1 bag iWon! Ranch protein chips, finely crushed
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 1/2 large carrot (or 5-7 baby carrots)
  • 1/2-1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 can (15oz) chickpeas
  • 1 T chopped fresh parsley
  • 2-4 T ranch dressing of choice (I used the vegan brand Follow Your Heart)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • Salt & pepper, to taste (I personally donโ€™t add any!)
  • Toppings & buns of choice

METHOD:

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. *if you donโ€™t have parchment paper, itโ€™s ok ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Add onion, zucchini, and carrot into food processor or high-speed blender (I used my nutribullet) and pulse until veggies are finely chopped, place in mixing bowl
  3. Add rinsed chickpeas to same food processor/blender and pulse until almost all chunks are gone (a few are okay ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), add to mixing bowl as well.
  4. Add parsley, garlic powder, ranch dressing, crushed chips, and oat flour to the bowl and mix everything together well.
    1. If it is too wet, go ahead and add more oat flour.
    2. If it is too dry, add in more ranch dressing4
  5. Taste mixture and add salt and pepper and/or more garlic powder to taste.
  6. Form into 4 patties and place on lined baking sheet.
  7. Cook for 30-40 minutes until the patties are lightly browned and feel very dry to the touch. I know it seems like a long time…but these patties have a lot of moisture in them that needs to cook out to hold their shape well and taste just PERFECT โค
  8. (optional) Add cheese of chouce during the last few minutes in the oven to melt.
  9. Serve however you would like and with whatever toppings your lovely heart desires!2

**Leftover burgers will keep in the fridge for up to a week and can also be frozen for up to a month ๐Ÿ™‚

Eat. Enjoy. Love.
