    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.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 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
    • 25 g fresh white breadcrumbs
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • vegetable oil, for shallow oil
    • hamburger buns or salad greens, to serve


    1. 1
      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. Stir in the curry paste and remove from heat.
    2. 2
      Place the chickpeas in a food processor with the peanut butter and whizz until a thick paste. Add the spinach mixture and some seasoning and pulse until well blended. Using damp hands, shape the mixture into 6 even sized cakes.
    3. 3
      Wipe out the frying pan with kitchen paper and heat 2 Tbs of the vegetable oil. Cook the burgers in batches for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Serve warm, sandwhiched in a bread or bun with a stack of fresh salad.

      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.
