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

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.

  1. Looks seriously nice, will have to give it a try ! The pictures appear rather large in google reader, for some reason, but in the blog post they are nice and small.

    Do you think you could freeze these ? Or are they better done fresh ?

  2. Have ended up freezing them in the past and it works out nicely when reheating in the oven. As it’s egg I’d just say to cook it first and don’t keep them frozen more than a few weeks.

    With regards to the google reader thing hmmm the images are mostly 1024 and end up being resized via CSS hence the issue in google reader I’m guessing hadn’t thought of that :( Given both my monitors are 1920×1080 I guess the max the image ends up being is 770px wide so will reduce size to that in future for the images though that’s probably still too big for google reader. I do like putting up larger size images as the blog is a bit of an experiment in taking better photos as well.
