Udis Gluten Free Whole Grain Hamburger Buns

Sliced Vegetables and toppings of choice – tomato, olives, lettuce, onion, feta, sprouts, hummus, aioli (mayonnaise) work great!


  • Dice cauliflower into smaller pieces. Place in large skillet with oil, garlic, chickpeas, and 1/4 tsp of the smoked paprika. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Cook 4-5 minutes on medium heat, coating the chickpeas and cauliflower with the seasoning and oil.

  • Remove from pan and place all in food processor. Pulse 3 times on low. Add chopped onion and 1/2 of the pumpkin seeds to the food processor.

  • Blend until all is mixed. Batter will still be a bit thick and chunky. Scrape sides. Add the other half of the pumpkin seeds, parsley, spices, etc. Blend until a moldable “burger” batter is formed. The seeds and veggies will be finely chopped at this point.

  • Place in mixing bowl. Add sugar, gluten free flour, and mix with hands.

  • Chill batter 10 minutes.

  • Form into patties that are 4-5 inches wide. You can use 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup of batter to measure this, then press flat with hand..

  • Heat grill and brush the grill with oil to so the chickpea burgers cook evenly. You can also bake the burgers. See below. Grill burgers 6-8 minutes each side. Flipping carefully.

  • The last 5 minutes of grilling, place the gluten free hamburger buns (sliced in half and face down) on the grill to toast.

  • *If you choose to bake * Preheat oven to 400F. Line baking sheet or oil baking sheet. Place patties on baking sheet and in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Flipping once.

  • Serve your chickpea burger on toasted buns with choice of fixings and toppings. These burgers also freeze well. Wrap them in foil to keep shape before freezing.
