Spicy Vegetarian Burgers

Posted 2017-06-23 by Maryanafollow
Chickpeas are a popular meat replacement with vegetarians. Unlike meat - especially red meat, they are cholesterol free and are often added to heart-healthy protein meals.

In addition, chickpeas are a prebiotic food which acts like fuel for good bacteria, contributing to a healthy microbiome that defends your system against toxins you might encounter from the environment or animal products.



These vegetarian patties can be served as a traditional burger, or on a slice of whole-grain bread, or even with vegetables.

Preparation time: 10 minutes.
Cooking time: 18-20 minutes.
Makes: 4 -6 servings

Ingredients:
1 small carrot
175g chickpeas
1 tablespoon whole-grain flour
½ red pepper
1 spring onion, chopped
1 ½ tablespoon tahini
2 teaspoons lemon juice
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Sunflower oil for cooking



Method:
  • Put the carrot in a food processor and process until finely chopped.



  • Add the next 9 ingredients, starting with the chickpeas and finishing with the parsley. Pulse the ingredients to combine.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and season it with salt and black pepper.



  • Stir in the sesame seeds and egg white to bind.



  • Form the mixture in your hands into 4-6 patties.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat and then add the patties.



  • Cover the frying pan and cook the patties over low-moderate heat for about 10 minutes, until the bottoms begin to brown.
  • Flip patties and cook them, covered, for another 10 minutes or until golden.



  • Serve the burgers with mixed veggies or, simply, top them with chopped fresh parley and a slice of lemon.
