These meat-free burgers are easy, delicious and filled with protein thanks to Pams Chickpeas! To make these patties vegan simply remove the egg and half of the breadcrumbs – without egg they are more fragile so take care when cooking them. 

Ready in: 30 minutes 

Ingredients

  • 400g can Pams Chickpeas, drained and rinsed 
  • ½ Pams Organic Red Onion, roughly chopped 
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped 
  • ¼ cup coriander leaves 
  • 1 teaspoon Pams Ground Cumin 
  • 1 teaspoon Pams Ground Coriander 
  • 1 Pams Free Range Egg 
  • ½ cup fresh breadcrumbs (using Pams Bread of choice) 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 2-3 tablespoons Pams Pure Olive Oil 
  • 4 Pams Finest Brioche Buns 
  • 2 tablespoons Pams Pesto 
  • 1-2 Pams Tomatoes, sliced 
  • 2 tablespoons Pams Mayonnaise 
  • Small handful basil and/or Pams Baby Rocket 

Directions 

  1. Place the chickpeas, onion, garlic, coriander leaves, cumin, coriander, and egg into the bowl of a food processor and process until well chopped but not smooth. Mix in the breadcrumbs and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. 
  2. Divide the mixture into 4 and press into patties. 
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Fry the patties for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden, then drain on kitchen paper.

  5. Spread the base of each brioche with pesto and then top with a pattie. 
  6. Add the tomato, dot with mayonnaise and add a few basil/rocket leaves.
