veggie burgers, veggie burger recipe


1 can rinsed and drained chickpeas

Handful of leaf parsley

1 leek, thinly cut

1 small can of corn, drained

1 clove garlic

Zest of 1 lemon

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp garam masala

3 tbsp sesame seeds

A few tbsp flour or almond meal

A few tbsp polenta to dip in (optional)

Olive oil


Mix everything in a good food processor, except for the chickpeas and the flour. Make sure you don’t mix it too long, as you still want some structure to it. Add the chickpeas and mix again. Transfer the “dough” to a bowl and add a few tbsp (gluten-free) flour (or almond meal), just enough to make it stick to make burgers. Put the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes, then make burgers. Dip the burgers in polenta before frying them in olive oil. Serve the burgers with your favorite bread, tomato, lettuce, avocado, red pesto and vegan mayo.
