Healthy burgers – so easy to make! Next time we’re going to try them in flatbreads with houmous and hot chilli sauce!
Falafel burgers – to feed 4
- 400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- garlic clove, chopped
- handful of flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- ½ tsp harissa paste or chilli powder
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 2 tbsp sunflower oil
- toasted pitta bread
- tomato salsa, to serve
- green salad, to serve
Pat the chickpeas dry with some kitchen paper. Tip into a food processor with the onion, garlic, parsley, spices, flour and some salt. Blend until fairly smooth and shape into burgers with your hands.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the burgers for 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Serve with toasted pittas, salsa and salad.
Wine Suggestion: A simple juicy, fruity red is all that’s required here like a Grenache or Tempranillo.
