Servings 4 | Prep Time 30 | Total Time 50 minutes
- 400g can chickpeas, drained
- zest 1 lemon, plus juice ½
- 50g pistachios
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- small bunch coriander, chopped
- 1 egg or flax egg
- 100g fresh breadcrumbs
- 1 medium red onion, ½ diced, ½ sliced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 Seeded Burger Bun
- 1 Vine Tomatoes
- 80g Rocket
- 1 Lemon
- 50g Vegan Mayonnaise
In a food processor, mix the chickpeas, lemon zest, pistachios, lemon juice, cumin, half the coriander, the flax egg and some seasoning.
Scrape into a bowl and mix with the breadcrumbs and the diced onions. Form 4 burgers and chill for at least 10 mins.
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.
Meanwhile, halve the buns and warm for 2 mins in the oven or on a pan.
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.
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.
