Vegan Chickpea Burger


WomensBest_Recipes

Ingredients:

Serves: 4

 

1 x 400 g tin of chickpeas
1 x 340 g tin of sweetcorn
½ a bunch of fresh coriander
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 lemon, zest of
3 heaped tablespoons plain flour, plus extra for dusting
sea salt
rapeseed oil
1 small round lettuce
2 large ripe tomatoes
tomato ketchup
4 wholemeal burger buns

 

Directions:

Drain and place the chickpeas and sweetcorn into a food processor. Pick the coriander leaves, then add half to the processor along with all of the stalks. Add the spices, lemon zest, flour and a pinch of salt, then pulse until combined, but not smooth – you want to retain a bit of texture.

 

On a flour-dusted surface, divide and shape the mixture into four equally sized patties (roughly 2cm thick). Pop onto a tray and place in the fridge for around 30 minutes to firm up.

 

Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the patties and cook for around 10 minutes, or until golden and cooked through, turning halfway.

 

Meanwhile, click off, wash and spin-dry four nice lettuce leaves, then finely slice the tomatoes horizontally.

 

Squeeze a large dollop of ketchup onto the base of each bun (toast them if you like), then top with the burgers. Layer over a couple of slices of tomato, a lettuce leaf, a few coriander leaves and finally the burger tops. Serve with a crisp, green salad, if you like.

 

Enjoy your meal!
