This Fourth of July weekend, family barbecues and patriotic parties are finally back in session. What better way to kick off the 4th than celebrating with an easy, customizable, plant-based quinoa burger?  


Ancient Harvest’s Vegetable Quinoa Chickpea Burgers are an easy option that both vegetarians and carnivores will enjoy.  


  • ½ cup Ancient Harvest Harmony Organic Quinoa

  • 1 cup vegetable broth

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 red onion, chopped

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 cup red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  • 1 cup mushrooms, diced

  • ½ cup carrot, diced

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 1 flax egg (1 ½ tablespoons ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons water, set aside for 5 minutes)

  • 1 tablespoon oregano

  • 1 tablespoon basil

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons guar gum (optional, creates a sturdier patty)

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Red pepper flakes, to taste

  • Burger toppings: tomato slices, avocado, lettuce



  1. Cook the quinoa according to package instructions, cooking in vegetable broth instead of water.

  2. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat and sauté onions until translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in red bell pepper, celery, mushrooms, and carrots, and cook for another 5 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl, mash the chickpeas and stir together with quinoa, flax egg, and cooked veggies. Add spices, mustard, guar gum, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, stirring to combine.

  4. Set a pan with olive oil over medium-high heat and form 4 patties with the quinoa vegetable mixture. Cook the patties for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden.

  5. Assemble burgers and enjoy!
