Chilli chickpea burgers

While it may not feel like summer for us Brits right now, we can still act like it is! These burgers dont need a real BBQ, but still taste like summer, especially with a crisp green salad and fresh crusty roll.

Unfortunately, in all my excitement and hunger, I didn’t take a picture of the finished product once it was cooked. You will have to find out for yourselves! But I will make sure I put my blog before my belly in future…!

Press some Halloumi or Mozzarella into the middle of the burger and cover with some more burger mixture for a squishy middle!

You will need:

  • Can of Chickpeas
  • 2 reds onion chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 4 Button Mushrooms
  • 200g Bread crumbs
  • Squeeze of sweet chilli sauce
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • Mozzerella/Haloumi
    Blend and go!

     

    In terms of making these babys, the process is simple.

    First, blend up your chickpeas with seasoning to taste. Then add all the other ingredients once they have been chopped, and blend them too!

    This should leave you with a thick brown paste.

    Prepare a surface with some cling film on. With your hands make plumb shaped balls of paste and pop them onto the cling film.

    Next take your small chunks of cheese and push them into the blobs as shown in the top photo, then hide the cheese with more paste and squish down into a flatter burger shape. Simples!

    Once you have made as many as you can from the mixture (I got about 6) pop them in the fridge for 30 mins.

    Heat up some olive oil on a frying pan and carefully put in the patties you made earlier. They should take about 15 mins to fry off, but remember to flip them!

    As always, feel free to alter these veggie friendly burgers! Instead of chilli sauce, try reggae! Pop in some Lemon juice and mint, or even some tangy ketchup! I winged this recipe from what we had in the cupboards and the fridge, so it’s a great last minute panic option. Let me know how you get on!
