Meatless Burger (Vegan)

This quick and easy veggie burger recipe uses chickpeas and sweetcorn to tempt even the most carnivorous of meat eaters. It's vegan too.

Ingredients:

Serves 4
For the Burger:

  • 400g chickpea (drained)
  • 340g sweetcorn (drained)
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 2g cracked black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 5ml olive oil

For the Dish:

  • 4 burger patties
  • 4 vegan burger rolls
  • 8 baby gem leaves
  • 4 slices of tomato
  • 4 slices of red onion
  • 20g tomato sauce
  • 5ml olive oil

Method:

For the Burger:

  • Drain the chickpeas and sweetcorn, then blend together using a food processor
  • Next, add the spices, flour and seasoning and bring together using the pulse setting
  • Gradually add the lemon juice, being careful not to over blend as you want to keep the texture
  • On a well-floured tabletop divide the mixture into 4 equal burger patties, roughly around 3cm thick
  • Place in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes

For the Dish:

  • Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and add the burger patties
  • Cook for 12 minutes and turn halfway
  • On a plate you can now start to build your burger. On the lower half of the burger bun spread the tomato ketchup
  • Next, add the baby gem leaves, tomato slices and onion slices (top tip: the lettuce should never touch the burger as it will wilt instantly)
  • Add the burger and finish with the top half of the burger roll
  • Serve with a fresh green side salad
