We love sharing the delectable eats our friends at The Chalkboard always seem to come up with. And this one is no exception! We think this pairing of chickpeas, chia seeds and a kick of curry is the perfect savory something to jump start the cooler season.
From Lauren Felts:
CHIA – OH HOW we love you! We use chia to whip up our breakfast banana parfait, our decadent chocolate chia pudding, and our morning blueberry pie green smoothie – so why not step outside of the box and add chia to to savory dishes as well? These simple seeds contain more nutrition than most people eat in one day’s time: eight times more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon, six times more calcium than milk, a higher antioxidant content than pomegranates, more magnesium than broccoli, and more fiber than flaxseeds. Plus chia turns into a gel when mixed with liquid, making it the ultimate egg and gluten replacement for use in any and every vegan recipe.

These Curry Chia Burgers are the invention of convivial couple Katie and Ryan from the foodie blog Veggie and the Beast. Katie is a veggie-loving vegetarian, and her other half is a carnivorous bow hunter – literally. Creating meals that satisfy both needs and palates, most of their recipes are vegan and gluten-free adaptations of classic comfort foods. And just to give you an idea of how creative their minds can be, they have made healthy gluten-free spin offs like Coconut Macaroon Waffles, Pumpkin Butter Maple Pecan Granola, and Kale Pesto and Tomato Linguine.
Gather up your ingredients, brace yourself for the ultimate vegan and gluten-free burger-making experience, and see how these curry chia burgers can change your health – and just maybe your life, too!
