Veggie Burgers Chickpea Style

Veggie Chickepea Burgers Raw
Stumbled across this recipe (mine is slightly altered) a few months back and thought to myself what the hell lets try it. I want to try being a bit healthier and it looks rather nice.
For it you’re going to need some pretty straight forward ingredients
  • 1 Tin chickpeas.
  • Breadcrumbs ( I used 1/3 to 1/2 a Baguette made into breadcrumbs roughly)
  • 1 (or 2) grated carrot(s) (large)
  • 5 (decent sized) shallots chopped .. nice milder flavour you could use a red onion as well
  • 2 Eggs
  • Corriander
  • Ground Cumin
  • Extras you’ll need … lemon juice
  1. Make your breadcrumbs first then blend the chickpeas and mix in the breadcrumbs and the shallots.
  2. Add your grated carrots .
  3. Add some lemon juice ( used the bottle kind and a few shakes of the bottle)
  4. 2 tea spoons Cumin (ground)
  5. Add some corriander ( used a fresh frozen one)
  6. Add in the 2 beaten eggs
  7. Mixed it all with hands (obviously it’s no longer in the blender)
  8. Make it into balls golf size or a bit bigger and flatten a bit.

 

Veggie Chickpea Burgers Cooked
  1. Throw them into the fridge for 30 minutes
  2. Then bake for 30 minutes around 200C
Nice and simple :) not that time consuming either (mainly have to wait for them) … and costs about 1.50 – 2 euro to make six next time will do double and freeze some I think
A Single Veggie Chickpea Burger
What you end up doing with yours is up to you. I ate them plain by themselves. I cut one up and put it into a baguette with some rocket, baby tomatoes and wholegrain mustard.
