Jackfruit Burger (grill friendly)

Delicious burger with a spicy patty of chickpeas and jackfruit

Jackfruit Burger is actually already available on veganevibes, however, you can not compare the two variations. One is a “Pulled” version and today’s recipe is a fine, compact patty. Firm to the bite, flavorful and even suitable for the grill. I think they are just mega good and could make some again right away. At the moment it’s barbecue season anyway and you can never have enough vegan recipes for it. Personally, I find that a burger just always goes, and when wonderful roasted flavors come into play, I’m happy as a clam.

Today’s patties are made with jackfruit meat, a meat substitute that ends up in my kitchen very regularly. The exotic fruit has very many advantages, among other things, the flesh remains nice and fibrous and firm to the bite, even during cooking and grilling. Unlike meat, jackfruit is full of important fiber and antioxidants. Taste they are relatively neutral and therefore incredibly versatile.

For the patties we need chickpeas, jackfruit, onion, garlic granules, BBQ seasoning, Worcestershire sauce (optional), salt, mustard and chickpea flour. That’s all there is to it. The chickpea flour provides a great binding without making the patties too dry. The fibers of jackfruit and chickpeas provide a wonderful texture. For me, overall, a more than successful burger pattie.

The patties are perfect and now only the remaining ingredients are missing. Buns, lettuce, tomato slices, pickles, onion rings and a tasty sauce. Here this time I was in the mood for a homemade remoulade. You can find the recipe for it here.

4 Patties


  • 265 g Chickpeas equivalent to 1 can or jar – drained
  • 400 g Jackfruit I take the ones from Jacky F from Alnatura,
  • 110 g red onion finely chopped (equivalent to a medium onion)
  • 1 tbspn Garlic granules or 1 clove of garlic finely chopped
  • 2 tbspn BBQ spice or any other spice mixture of your choice
  • ½ tbspn Salt
  • 1 tbspn spicy mustard
  • 110 g Chickpea flour
  • Oil for baking out or grilling


  • Burger Buns
  • Salad leaves
  • Tomato slices
  • Onion cut into rings
  • Pickles sliced
  • Burger sauce of your choice for example homemade BBQ sauce or remoulade


  • Preparation : Drain chickpeas, optionally saving chickpea water for making aquafaba (instructions for making and recipes here). Drain jackfruit, rinse briefly with cold water and dry lightly. “Tear” with a fork or your hands to make the flesh nice and fibrous.
    265 g Chickpeas
  • FOR THE JACKFRUIT PATTIES provide large bowl. Place chickpeas, jackfruit, onion, garlic granules, BBQ seasoning, salt and spicy mustard in a bowl and mix with your hands until everything is well combined.

  • Add chickpea flour and blend until compact.
    110 g Chickpea flour
  • Cover, place in refrigerator, and allow to infuse for at least an hour or overnight.
  • After the cooling time, remove from the refrigerator and divide into four equal portions. If you like the patties smaller, make 6 servings.
  • Preheat oven to 200degrees convection (or 220 top bottom heat) and bake patties for 15 minutes.
    Note: Pre-baking in the oven is important so that the patties are cooked through on the inside. On the grill or in the pan, they are then seared for just a few minutes on both sides.
  • Heat grill or skillet and place patties directly on grill or in skillet. For pan frying, I recommend using a little oil so the patties don’t get too dry. For grilling, generously brush the pre-baked patties with oil to make them nice and crispy on the outside.
