Chickpea Sliders w/ French Fries


Happy Hump Day! Now we must address this epic-ness we see before our eyes…. Burger Sliders!!


How cute are they??! They pack a punch let me tell you! Not in heat/spice, I mean they’re quite hearty and heavy and that’s why this mini size is perfect! These chickpea patties are so simple to make and full of flavour! If you love chickpeas, you will love these wholesome vegan burger patties.

The burger bun for these sliders are actually my Gluten Free Bread Roll recipe. All I did was make the rolls smaller so they would be mini burger buns! You’re welcome to use store-bought mini burger buns or if you have one of you own favourite recipes, use that too!


These chickpea patties are golden and crispy on the outside and soft and thick on the inside. If you also make these bread rolls as your burger buns, your sliders will fill you up! Now that’s a good thing in my books. I always try to fill myself up at dinner time so I won’t have any temptations after dinner to indulge in naughty things such as chocolate, ice-cream and potato chips….. but that wouldn’t completely stop me. 😉


Ok we haven’t even touched on the fact that these mini burger sliders have FRENCH FRIES IN THEM!!! :O Of course you can enjoy your french fries on the side of your burger but how much fun are they when they’re in the burger itself?! I know I have been saying that these burgers are heavy and hearty and adding french fries into the sliders is probably a little to much but these aren’t for the faint hearted. I will admit though, I didn’t eat all day and I had two of these mini burgers for dinner, plus french fries and a side of pasta salad. I have no regrets. I will later though when I digest it all. Oh cannot wait for that!

Add any of your favourite toppings in your burgers, we added cheese, tomato, spinach leaves, onion and tomato sauce! Oh and I also spread a little smashed avocado on the bun also, delicious! I hope you enjoy these gorgeous sliders, mini burgers are so much fun!!

  1. Burger Bun
  2. Follow my recipe for these Gluten Free Burger Buns. I made the rolls smaller to make them sliders. Or use store-bought mini rolls or make your own recipe!
  3. French Fries
  4. Preheat oven to 200°C (390°F). Line a large baking tray with parchment paper, set aside.
  5. Slice potatoes into thin french fries. Use more potatoes to make more fries if you also want them on the side of your sliders.
  6. Place sliced potatoes into a large bowl.
  7. Add melted coconut oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix until fries are completely coated.
  8. Arrange potatoes in one layer on prepared tray. You may need to use 2 trays for this step.
  9. Bake fries for 20-30 minutes, or until crispy and golden, turning them halfway through cooking to ensure even cooking.
  10. Begin chickpea patties. If your fries cook before your patties, turn off the oven and move the tray onto the bottom rack. Or leave them out and return them to the oven to heat up later.
  11. Chickpea Patties
  12. In a high speed food processor, add chickpeas, onion, garlic, zucchini and tomato. Pulse on high until ingredients are just combined. Leaving a few smaller chunks of zucchini.
  13. Transfer mixture into a large mixing bowl.
  14. Add sesame seeds, herbs, curry powder, cumin and salt and pepper, mix until well combined.
  15. Add oat flour, half a cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  16. Stir through coconut flour. The mixture will be sticky and soft. Set mixture aside to heat up your fry pan, it will get slightly thicker whilst it sits.
  17. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large fry pan over high heat.
  18. Wearing gloves, gently pick up a small portion of the patty mixture, about the size of a golf ball.
  19. Place into melted oil, fry patties on each side for 2-3 minutes or until crispy and golden.
  20. Repeat with remaining mixture and extra 1 tablespoon oil. You may need to make them in batches depending on the size of your fry pan.
  21. Burgers
  22. Slice open your burger buns.
  23. Place one patty into each bun, arrange one layer of french fries and add your desired toppings.
  24. Serve with a side of more fries, salad and enjoy!
Store leftovers in an airtight container, refrigerated, for 3-4 days.
The chickpea patty mixture is quite sticky and wet. They will fry well and become golden and crispy so not too worry! It’s meant to be that way.
You can also make your chickpea patties ahead of time and heat them up for when your sliders are ready. Or visa versa with your french fries.
