Spicy Bean Patties are top 8 free, vegan, and gluten free! They are great eaten like a hamburger, with a salad, or as a snack on the go.


  • 1 can Lentils – rinsed and drained
  • 1 can Chickpeas – rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 clove garlic – minced
  • 1 small onion (approx. 1/4 cup) – minced
  • 1 tsp Chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Chili flakes (you can use more or less depending on how much heat you like!)
  • 1/4 cup Oat flour (GF) or cornmeal
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil


  • Potato masher or fork
  • Large & small bowl
  • Frying pan


  1. Place lentils, chickpeas and salt in a large mixing bowl. Using either a potato masher or two forks mash the beans until they become a paste – it is ok to have some chunks for texture.
  2. Add the minced garlic, minced onions, chilli powder, oregano, and chilli flakes. Mix well.
  3. Place the oat flour in the small bowl. Scoop out the bean paste and form into a patty (roughly 1/4cup for ten patties). Roll the patty in the oat flour to lightly coat – pat the excess flour into the patty.
  4. Heat your frying pan. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the patties. Avoid overcrowding since the patties are quite soft and challenging to flip – you may need to batch cook them or use two pans. Cook on medium-high heat for roughly 5 minutes, until the patty is firm and crispy. Flip and cook the other side for another 4-5 minutes until crispy. Flip one more time and cook for a minute for an extra crispy patty.
  5. Serve fresh or store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.


If your bean patty is super soft, then add a teaspoon of oat flour or cornmeal to bind it.
