I've been eating so many veggie burgers lately when going out, so I thought it's time again to make my own proper veggie burgers. These are my vegan, rustic, low fat burger patties made with root vegetables, chickpeas and spices. I really liked these oven baked flavoursome burgers. They were just perfect with spicy homemade potato wedges and chilli ketchup.
Chickpea and root vegetable burgers
4 small purple carrots
2 garlic cloves
1,5 cup chickpeas
Fresh coriander leaves
Ground cumin to taste
Smoked paprika to taste
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
4 tbsp breadcrumbs
Served with spicy smoky rubbed potato wedges on the side
Cut the root vegetables into smaller pieces, brush them with olive oil and roast in the oven until done. Mash them after the roasting.
Cook the chickpeas. Soak them overnight first, if you are using dried chickpeas.
Chop the onion and garlic finely and cook them in oil in a pan until soft.
Combine the chickpeas, root vegetables, onion and garlic, mashed root vegetables and mash the chickpeas also partly.
Season the mix and shape generously sized burger patties from the mix.
Bake the burger patties at 200 C for about 30 minutes.
Serve the patties with rolls and any fillings you wish and enjoy!
