Falafel Burger

IMAG1021We try to have a couple of meat free days during the week. I don’t feel like I am missing out when I have something like this, it is so satisfying and filling! It took lots of attempts to get my recipe correct. This one works well for our family ­čÖé┬á

Ingredients:

75 g breadcrumbs (I use Nana’s recipe)

1 onion

2 garlic cloves

5 button mushrooms

bunch coriander

1/2 chili

1 tsp turmeric

2 tsp harissa relish

1 400 g tin chickpeas

1/2 tin sweetcorn

salt

pepper

 I just pop everything in the processor and whizz together.

Shape into thick patties and pat with a little flour. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge until you are ready to use them.

Pre heat your deep fryer (eeeek, this is not healthy!)

I have cooked these in the oven but they dry out so much, and they broke up a little too. So although the deep fry isn’t too healthy, they do taste better.

I cook for 7 minutes.

The dressing

1 tablespoon greek yogurt

1 1/2 tablespoon tahini paste

a little lemon juice

I serve this with a chunky slice of cheddar cheese and sliced tomato. I served a pea salad on the side, lightly dressed with some olive oil and lemon juice.

Enjoy ­čÖé
