This mighty minty falafel burger recipe is from Fay Ripley’s What’s for Dinner cookbook. I have shared this recipe with so many friends and family over the years and everyone loves them. Apart from being completely moreish, they are super easy to make and are low in fat and healthy too.
Makes 4-6 burgers
1 can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
3 spring onions trimmed and roughly chopped
20g fresh mint leaves
1 large carrot, peeled and grated
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp sea salt ( leave out salt if serving to babies)
2 tbsp plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2-3 tbsp olive oil
Place everything into the food processor and whizz until smooth. With floured hands, form into about 4-6 flat patties.
In a large non-stick pan, heat the oil and fry the burgers until golden and crispy ( about 3-4 mins each side). Serve in pitta bread with hummous and a couple of slices of apple………YUM
