Chickpea Burger

Hi this is KK, Sushi Artist / Healthy Muffin Maker / Mum 🙂

Thank you for visiting my blog.

 

I am experimenting on how to make a Vegan burger, using all sorts of different veggies and lentils. I’ve tried kidney beans, soy beans, mung beans, potatoes, pumpkins and lotus roots. There has been success and failure (^-^;), but the one I’m introducing today is a definite success. My daughter Yumi ate 2 of it with her own hands, to the taste is Yumi-waranteed!

 By the looks of it, it really looks like a normal hamburger patties, doesn’t it? It taste similar to burgers too, but no meat, no egg, no nothing!

 

The key to success is making the patties rather small. You can compare it to my pumpkins and zucchinis behind it and imagine the relative size. This is to make it easier to flip it over on your frying pan when cooking.

 

I used caraway seeds as an accent herb, and that made it a great success, but you can use any herb of your choice. I might try basil or oregano one day, and see how it turns out!

 

Ingredients (to make 7 small patties)

-2/3 cup (100g) Organic chic peas, soaked overnight and cooked (you can use canned beans for this to make it easier)

-1/2 medium size Onion

-2 Tablespoon Organic plain flour

-1/2 teaspoon Caraway seeds, or herb of your choice

-1/2 teaspoon Soy sauce

 

Method

Step 1: Put all ingredients in a food processor and mix on high for 30 sec.

 

Step 2: Make small patties, smaller than the size of your palm and cook on frying pan with a little bit of olive oil. Cook one side for 8 min, FLIP ONCE, and cook for another 6min.

 

So easy, yet so tasty. I think it is OK to be served hot or cold, didn’t have the chance to try it cold because we ate it all for dinner! Enjoy 🙂
