These vegetarian burgers are delicious and easy to whip up. Don’t limit yourself to the toppings suggested here, let your imagination run wild. You can also serve the patties bunless, instead wrapping them in iceberg lettuce leaves. A final dollop of aioli never goes amiss.
- Into a food processor place the chickpeas, pumpkin, breadcrumbs, parsley, spring onion, cumin, paprika and salt blending until the mixture holds together. Shape into 4 patties. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
- Heat a tablespoon of oil in a frying pan. Cook the patties for a few minutes each side. Spray a little extra oil if needed to coat the patties.
- Serve with toasted buns, tomatoes, salad and chutney.
