I love falafel and have a popular recipe for them here. With a yoghurt dip they are a great starter or snack but not always enough for the main meal in my opinion. I do enjoy them in a wholemeal pitta sometimes with salad as an alternative to a kebab. These falafel burgers are a great vegetarian burger full of flavour and easy to make.

The burgers are not easily cooked on a BBQ unless cooked on something flat, the mixture easily falls through the grill otherwise. We use teppanyaki grills for a BBQ which are perfect for this.

Tasty falafel burgers perfect for summer evenings or as a vegetarian burger for all the family to enjoy a meat-free meal.
400g can chickpeas, drained
60g wholemeal bread made into breadcrumbs
1 tbsp onion chutney
1 large garlic clove, crushed
4 spring onions, thinly sliced
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
2 tbsp plain flour
Using a blender coarsely blend the chickpeas until they are a rough but blended mixture, it shouldn’t be too smooth.
Dust your hands and work surface with the plain flour and make the mixture into four burgers, each around 1cm thick.
The mixture will appear to fall apart easily but don’t worry when it has been in the fridge it will hold together better.
Place the burgers on a plate uncovered in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Using low-calorie cooking spray gently fry the burgers for 5 minutes on each side over medium heat.
Serve and enjoy
