BEETROOT & CHICKPEA VEGGIE BURGERS

Time for another creative Sunday in the kitchen with me!

Since deciding to change my diet exactly one year ago this month & introducing a more plant based approach to my lifestyle my creativity in the kitchen has really unleashed. One of my fave things to eat is homemade vegetarian burgers & especially with the help of my Spanish sidekick. He has taught me how to mix flavours that work & create some serious magic in the kitchen so with his help we conjured up these little beetroot delights.

 

I try to keep all of my recipes as simple as possible & I can promise that these really are no different. 

 

What you will need –

250 grams of chickpeas (washed & drained)

2 medium already cooked beetroots

1/2 red onion

1/4 cup of ground oats

Spices to taste –  garlic powder, cumin, coriander, spicy paprika, chilli flakes, cinnamon, black pepper & sea-salt

 

Method – 

– Place the chickpeas (washed & drained) into a food processor & blend until a dry mixture is formed.

 -Finely chop the red onion & beetroot.

– Mix the chopped red onion & beetroot into chickpea mixture with your hands or with a spoon. (hands work best)

– Add the spices to your taste, followed by the ground oats & mix well

(again working with your hands is best)

Taste test – more cumin, paprika, cinnamon, whatever it is ….  add it if you want!

Mold the mixture into even sized veggie burgers. (For this mix we got 3 servings)

Ella’s tip – You can double your mixture & freeze the leftovers!
