Hi dear friends! I thought I’d throw in one of my favorite recipes from LUSCIOUS Autumn ’13 before we launch the Winter edition! Hope you enjoy these delicious carrot & chickpea burgers!
250g chickpeas (cooked or canned)
800g carrots, peeled and sliced into 2cm pieces
30g spelt flour
4 whole grain buns
2 sweet onions
2 tbsp olive oil
Bring water to boil, reduce heat to medium-heat, add carrots and cook for 20min or until tender. Drain and transfer to a food processor. Add chickpeas and season with salt & pepper. Pulse until it forms a thick paste. Cover and chill for 20min to help firm up the mixture.
Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions, shaping each into a patty. Sift the spelt flour into a deep plate. In another plate, beat an egg. Dip patties in the egg and then flour to cover. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a nonstick skillet and cook on each side till golden brown and crispy.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in another skillet large pan, add the onion and fry until soft and lightly colored.
Line the whole grain buns bun with salad. Top each bun half with a burger, sweet onions, and the top half of the bun.
