• 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Gregg's Ground Smoked Paprika
  • 400g can Wattie’s Chickpeas in Springwater, drained
  • 450g can Wattie's Sliced Beetroot, drained
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 100g creamy feta, crumbled (omit for dairy free)
  • 4 burger buns, cut in half and toasted

  • Toppings of your choice:
  • Rocket leaves
  • Avocado
  • Wattie's Sliced Beetroot
  • HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Original Mayonnaise
  1. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion over low heat until soft. Add the Gregg's Ground Smoked Paprika and stir until fragrant. Remove from the heat.
  2. Place the drained Wattie’s Chickpeas in a food processor and process until they are well mashed.* Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  3. Finely chop ½ the can of Wattie’s Sliced Beetroot and add to the chickpeas with the onion mixture, parsley and crumbled feta. Mix well then form into patties.** Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  4. Heat a little oil in the frying pan. Cook the patties over medium–low heat for 3–4 minutes on each side or until golden and hot.
  5. Serve in toasted buns with toppings of your choice: rocket leaves, avocado, the remaining Wattie’s Sliced Beetroot and HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Original Mayonnaise.

Top Tips

  • *Make sure the chickpeas are well drained before processing. Process well to ensure chickpeas are mashed so they will bind with other ingredients to form firm patties.
  • **If you find your mixture is too wet, add a little chickpea flour or plain flour before forming into patties.

Very nice. Red kidney beans are great instead of chick peas.

Hi Vanessa

Thank you for your query. It is very important to drain the chickpeas well before adding them to the food processor. Make sure that when you process the chickpeas they are well mashed before adding the other ingredients. They should form into patties and hold together. We triple test our recipes to ensure that you should get perfect results every time.

The patties were really yum! A delicious substitute to meat. However didn't hold together super well, despite drying the chickpeas with a paper towel. Maybe best cooked in the oven?

Hi Kellie,

Thanks for your feedback! We're glad you're enjoying the recipe! For the patties to hold shape, you will need to process the chickpeas quite finely and for longer - almost to a paste.

Hope this helps!
