The ultimate Chickpea burger
Who doesn’t love a good burger. Especially being vegan I’m guilty of fancying a delicious burger especially knowing that vegan burgers are actually very healthy and nutritious and at the same time really comforting. Especially in the summer I love to sit outside on a warm evening with friends and get our hands dirty. Whenever I fancy a burger it’s this recipe that I love to make as it’s easy, healthy and absolutely delicious. It’s always a winner!
Makes 6 medium burgers
- 1 tin (340g) sweetcorn
- 1 tin (400g) chickpeas
- 1 lemon

- ½ teaspoon ground coriander
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- nut oil
- 3 tablespoons wholemeal flour
- 6 wholemeal burger buns
- 3 large tomatoes
- ½ medium white onion
- 2 hands full of spinach

- First drain the chickpeas and sweetcorn, make sure no water remains. Then place them in a food processor.
- Then also add the spices, flour, coriander, grate in the lemon zest and season with some salt and pepper.
- Pulse this mixture until everything is combined, but not smooth – you want to retain some texture.
- Dust a plate or a surface with flour and scoop out your mixture with a spoon shaping them into 6 individual burgers. Try to make them equally sized.

- Put some oil in a large pan over a medium heat and bake your patties for about 8-10 min, until they are golden brown on both sides.
- Slice your union and tomatoes into slices, and wash your spinach.
- First toast your burger buns and then you’ll be ready to create your burger!
- Get the bun and place your patty on the bottom,then layer with slices tomato, onion and spinach. Add some ketchup or vegan mayo for the ultimate delight.
