Vegan Hemp Burgers

Some days, you just need a burger. If today is one of those days, we’re here for you.

These vegan hemp burgers may have a modest name but the flavor and texture are anything but. They’re tender without being mushy, not too sweet, not too salty, hearty, and seriously satisfying.

Containing a handful of wholesome, plant-based ingredients – including our chickpeas, Organic Hemp Seeds and 100% Flax Seed Powder – making your own burgers is the perfect way to stay on top of exactly what goes into them and boost the flavour with all your seasonings.

Hemp Burgers Recipe


  • 1 medium sweet potato (skin on) 
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained 
  • 2 stalks green onion, root ends removed and chopped 
  • 100g Organic Hemp Seeds
  • 1 tablespoon 100% Flax Seed Powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped and peeled 
  • 50g bread crumbs 
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes 
  • 1 tablespoons of salt 


  1. Wash the sweet potato and prick with a fork several times. Place in the microwave and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until tender. Let it sit until cool enough to handle, then chop into cubes with the skin on. 
  2. Place sweet potato chunks and drained chickpeas in a food processor together. Pulse in short bursts until mostly combined, leaving some texture. 
  3. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the hemp seeds. Then add the remaining hemp seeds and the rest of the ingredients to the food processor. Pulse in short bursts until combined. 
  4. Place a skillet over a medium heat and heat oil. 
  5. Make four patties out of the mixture, pressing some of the reserved hemp seeds into both sides of the patties. Cook the patties for 5 minutes on each side until brown. Turn the head down to low and allow the burgers to sit for 5 to ten minutes in the warm skillet to firm up. 
  6. Serve patties on buns with your favourite burger toppings!
