Chickpea & Mushroom Burgers

The original recipe for these burgers is in Vegan Food & Living magazine, however I tweaked the recipe slightly.

1 onion finely chopped
2 garlic cloves crushed
75 g mushrooms finely chopped
1 tbsp rosemary
1 tbsp tomato puree
2 tsp paprika
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
400 g can chickpeas
1 apple grated
Zest of one lemon
3 tbsp chickpea flour

Serves 4

Saute the onion, garlic and mushrooms in the oil for 10 mins, until thoroughly cooked down and browned.

Add the rosemary, paprika and tomato puree and cook for another 5 mins, being careful not to burn the paprika.

Crush the chickpeas with a potato masher, until you have a rough puree.

Add all the ingredients to the pan, turning off the heat first and mix pressing with the back of a spoon, to ensure it is thoroughly combined.

Shape into four equal sized burgers and either oven cook for 20-25 mins, until golden brown, or fry lightly in oil.

I served in a wholemeal wrap, with slaw, chilli sauce and chips.
