These gluten free, vegan burgers are a great alternative to a meat or fish burger, but are equally filling and satisfying! They have a ton of protein and fiber, and are packed with flavour. A must-try! I topped mine with spicy guacamole, spinach, and juicy tomatoes but you don’t have to stop there! Next time I make these, I am going to make sure I have a batch of my BBQ sauce in my cupboard and use that on top of these burgers! (Check out my recipe for some awesome bbq sauce by clicking here.
Makes 2 patties
– 225g(1 small can) chickpeas
– 180g corn
– 1 tablespoon cumin
– 1 tablespoon ground coriander
– 1 tablespoon turmeric
– 1 teaspoon chilli flakes (add more for a kick)
– 2 heaped tablespoons of a mix of herbs (I chopped rosemary, thyme and parsley)
– pinch of salt and pepper
– 1 tablespoon tahini, and a drizzle of the oil from the jar
3 teaspoons buckwheat flour
1. Drain the can of chickpeas. Pour chickpeas and corn in a food processor, and pulse until just mixed (a little broken down and only pulse for a couple of seconds). Pour broken down chickpeas and corn into a mixing bowl and with a wooden spoon mix in the rest of the ingredients.
2. Once mixed, shape into two burgers and stick in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
3. When that thirty minutes is up, heat some coconut oil in a pan and stick those patties on! They take about 5-7 minutes on each side and should be golden brown. Top with your favorite sauces and such!
It’s fairly appropriate that with the name Carmel, I have a strong interest in food!
I grew up in San Francisco and spent my summers in Cork, two amazing food cities. I find myself currently living in West Cork and experimenting with recipes and taking of photos of food I have created, which is marrying my two passions– photography and food.
I started baking and cooking as a way to relieve stress in high school, and found out pretty quickly I enjoyed being in the kitchen. In April 2014, I attended Ballymaloe Cookery School. Since then, I have have been working in different kitchens across Ireland, London, and Italy, building on my education and building up my palette.
My Blog ‘Cooking With Carmel” is a reflection of my traveling and growing up in a family of seven kids. I hope I inspire you to get in the kitchen and get cookin!
