Recipe Ingredients for Other - Chickpeas Burgers

480 g chickpeas

1 onion
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground ginger
140 g zucchini
6 tbsp rolled oats
3/4 tbsp salt or to taste

Recipe Directions for Other - Chickpeas Burgers

  1. If using dried chickpeas and you haven?t had time enough to soak them overnight, you can quick-soak them as follows: cover with several inches of cold water, bring to the boil and boil rapidly for about 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and allow to soak for at least an hour in the heated water.

  2. Drain the soaked chickpeas, put into a heavy saucepan with about 1 litre of fresh water. Bring up to the boil, then simmer, partially covered, for about 1.5 ? 2 hours or until the chickpeas are tender. Alternatively, if you have a pressure cooker, they?ll only need about 20 minutes of cooking once they?ve been brought up to pressure.

  3. If using tinned chickpeas, just drain and rinse them.

  4. Preheat your oven to 200C and brush your baking sheet(s) with olive oil.

  5. Place a large frying pan over a medium heat. When hot, add the olive oil and swirl it around the pan. Add the garlic and leeks (or spring onions) and stir and fry for about 4 minutes or until the leek whites have become translucent.

  6. Add the cumin, grated ginger and grated carrot to the pan and stir and fry for another couple of minutes, then remove from the heat.

  7. In a large bowl, mash the chickpeas coarsely, either using a potato masher or a fork.

  8. Add the carrot and leek mixture to the mashed chickpeas, along with the chopped coriander and parsley, lemon juice, oats and salt. Mix well to combine ? you should end up with a fairly stiff mixture.

  9. To make each burger, scoop out a generous heaped tablespoon of the mixture, flatten and form into a patty around 5cm or so in diameter and around 0.5 cm thick and place on the baking sheet. Continue until you?ve used up all of the mixture.

  10. Bake for about 10 minutes, then flip the patties over and bake for another 7-10 minutes until golden.

  11. Serve with pita bread, yoghurt and/or tahini and salads.
