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.
