These ‘meat-less’ burgers are so versatile! They are delicious, easy to make and healthy! Adjust them to your personal flavour / taste preference. The man – who hates chickpeas – literally gobbled them up and asked for more. I used the base recipe from My Eclectic Kitchen. Her vegan cucumber dill sauce (recipe here) is an amazing & easy addition to the recipe (but not necessary). The first time I made these burgers I mashed everything together by hand. It gave the burgers a chunky texture. The second time I used by food processor: it was significantly easier but both ways were equally delicious. Enjoy them with salad, veggies, on a wrap or in a bun; I don’t think you can go wrong.
Chickpea Burger base (makes 6-8 burgers):
- 2 x can chickpeas drained & rinsed
- 2 tbsp LSA (could also just use flax seed)
- 1 cup whole meal flour
- 6 tbsp water
- 1 cup green onions or white onions
- Cilantro or basil
- Garlic, garlic & garlic!
- Chopped capsicum
- Any other flavour you enjoy.
Mash, process or mix all ingredients together and form into patties.
Heat oil in frying pan and fry until golden on both sides.
