Falafel Burgers

Ingredients

  • 400g can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • ½ an onion
  • ½ cup parsley
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp chilli paste or powder
  • 2 tbsp regular flour
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Toasted pita pockets


Preparation

  1. Pat the chickpeas dry with paper towel. In a food processor, add the chickpeas along with the onion, garlic, parsley, spices, flour and a little salt. Blend until fairly smooth, and then shape into four patties with your hands.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the burgers, and then quickly fry for 3 minutes on each side until lightly golden. Serve in a lightly toasted pita with Tomatoes, Cucumber, lettuce, avocado, or any other veggie of choice. You can also add some fresh salsa, tzatziki, or hummus.
