If you love burgers as much as we do, we promise you will absolutely LOVE this chickpea & pistachio burger. It is delicious, vegan, and almost healthy.



1. In a food processor, mix the chickpeas, lemon zest, pistachios, lemon juice, cumin, half the coriander, the flax egg and some seasoning.
2. Scrape into a bowl and mix with the breadcrumbs and the diced onions. Form 4 burgers and chill for at least 10 mins.
3. Heat teaspoon of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the chickpea burgers in the hot oil until golden on both sides. This should take around 3-4 mins on each side.
4. Meanwhile, halve the buns and warm for 2 mins in the oven or on a pan.
5. Slice the tomatoes, wash rocket and place to a bowl. Halve the lemon and add a squeeze of lemon juice to the rocket along with a splash of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss together.
6. Spread vegan mayo over each bun half. Pop a chickpea burger on the bottom bun, then place some tomato slices on top. Top with a handful of rocket and sit the other half of the bun on top.
