Air Fryer Green Goddess Burgers

Air-Fryer Green Goddess Burgers are plant-based chickpea burgers with green goddess inspired flavors and a creamy green goddess dressing.

These tasty Green Goddess Burgers are filled with fresh herbs and spices for a bold green goddess flavor!

What is Green Goddess flavor?

Green Goddess is typically found in salad dressing form. I've just transformed those flavors into these burgers!

Green Goddess dressing usually has mayo, sour cream, chives, anchovy, tarragon, lemon juice, and pepper. While we won't be using the mayo, sour cream, or anchovies for this plant-based recipe, the burgers and dressing still have amazing flavor.

How to make Air-Fryer Green Goddess Burgers

Step 1. The day before you want to make falafel, soak the chickpeas and baking soda in lukewarm water. The beans will expand as they soak, so make sure to cover them in several inches of water.

Step 2. Add the chickpeas, onion, garlic, parsley, scallions, tarragon, chives, rice vinegar, salt, pepper, and cayenne to a food processor. Blend until mostly smooth. Don't over mix.

Step 3. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and refrigerate for an hour or so.

Step 4. Stir in the oat flour and baking powder.

Step 5. Shape the mixture into 1/2 cup patties. Flatten and place on the mesh tray of the air fryer.

Step 6. Fry on the third rack of the air fryer at 375 for 13-15 minutes.

Step 7. Meanwhile make the green goddess dressing. Mix all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 8. When the patties are cooked, assemble the burgers. Add your favorite toppings and drizzle with green goddess dressing. Enjoy!

Can I make these burgers without an air fryer?

Yes! If you don't have an air fryer, you can definitely still make these burgers in your oven. You'll want to increase the baking time by about 10 minutes. Check for doneness by making sure the outside of the burgers is nice and brown and  they stick together nicely.

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
