  • 240 g cooked chickpeas 1 standard 400g tin
  • 2 teaspoons aquafaba the liquid from the chickpeas, see above
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon chilli powder optional
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour or wholemeal or spelt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt optional

To serve

  • sweet potato wedges
  • mini burger buns
  • hummus or tahini sauce
  • salad


  • Drain and rinse a 400g tin of chickpeas, reserving the aquafaba (see above). You'll only need 2 teaspoons for this recipe so reserve the rest for other uses or discard. If you like you can rub the skins off of the chickpeas.
  • Place the rinsed chickpeas, 2 teaspoons of reserved aquafaba, 1 clove of crushed garlic, 1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley, ½ teaspoon ground cumin ½ teaspoon ground coriander, ½ teaspoon chilli powder (if using), ½ teaspoon baking powder, 2 tablespoons plain wholemeal or spelt flour, freshly ground black pepper and ½ teaspoon salt if using into a food processor and pulse until well combined.
  • Scrape out of the processor and form into eight balls. Gently flatten with your hands and place on a lightly greased or lined baking tray and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C fan/200°C/gas mark 6.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, turning half way, until golden brown on each side. Alternatively you can lightly fry in oil for 3-5 minutes on each side. This makes for a crispier outside to the burger.
  • Serve with salad, sweet potato wedges, hummus and mini rolls. These are also delicious in pitta bread.
