    Lene's Note:

    Chickpeas make a great veggie burger base and they taste fantastic when spiced up with a little cumin seed and curry paste. If you're feeding kids, opt for a milder curry paste than the hot one I go for.

    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
    • 225 g spinach leaves
    • 1 tablespoon hot curry paste
    • 2 (400 g) cans chickpeas, drained
    • 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter

      Heat the olive oil in a large fry pan and cook the onion for 2-3 minutes until beginning to soften. Add the cumin seeds, cook for 1 minute and then add the spinach and cook over a high heat for 5 minutes until the spinach has wilted and any water released has evaporated.

      My food processor had a hard time getting all this ground up. I had to add some liquid to get the job done. I added some tobasco as well but I still found this a bit too bland for my taste. They were quite mushy and not too efficient in a bun. Better to kind of spread them on a bun or bread rather than sandwich them. Interesting recipe though. Thanks Lene.
