Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Hawaiian
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal + 5 tablespoons water
  • Coconut oil or cooking spray
  • 1 yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 2 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (optional)
  • ¾ cup oat flour (ground-up rolled oats)
  • 8 thick slices of fresh pineapple
  • 12 whole-wheat or gluten-free hamburger buns
  • Optional toppings: avocado, greens, BBQ sauce, red onion
  1. Preheat oven to 375F; lightly grease a baking sheet. In a small bowl, add flax meal and water. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, warm oil or cooking spray. Add onion, bell pepper, carrot and jalapeño. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until vegetables begin to soften. Add the garlic; cook for 1 minute.
  3. To a food processor add the vegetables, chickpeas, cilantro, lemon juice, salt, paprika, cumin, pepper, and cayenne. Pulse until everything is chopped, but don’t form a paste. Add the oat flour; pulse until combined. Stir in the reserved flax meal.
  4. Form 12 patties and place onto the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, flip the burgers, then bake for 20 more minutes.
  5. While the burgers are baking, grill the pineapple slices in the same skillet over medium heat until lightly charred on each side.
  6. To make the burgers, add a patty to a bun and top with a pineapple slice and desired toppings.
*You don’t have to sauté the vegetables, but I feel it brings out their flavors more. If you don’t want to sauté them, simply throw them in the food processor raw.
**These freeze beautifully! You can reheat them in the microwave or oven.
