Chickpea and red onion burgers / Serves 4

Vegetarian burgers that pack a flavoursome punch


400g can chickpeas, drained

Zest 1 lemon, plus juice

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp garam masala

15g natural yoghurt

1 egg

100g fresh breadcrumbs

1 small red onion, diced

1 tbsp rapeseed oil

4 wholemeal pitta breads, and salad leaves to serve


Place the chickpeas, lemon juice, lemon zest, cumin, and egg in a food processor and process. Place the mixture in a bowl with 80g of the breadcrumbs and the onion and mix. Form the mixture into four burgers, place the remaining breadcrumbs on each side and chill.

In a frying pan, heat the oil until hot and fry the burgers for four minutes on each side making sure they don't burn.

In a bowl, mix the natural yoghurt with the garam masala.

Serve the burgers in a toasted wholemeal pitta bread with leaves and a dollop of the spiced yoghurt.
