1 onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, grated

625g chickpeas – I used 1 x 400g tin of chickpeas and 1 x 225g tin of chickpeas

1 veggie pudding, crumbled

1 tbsp cumin

1 tbsp ground coriander

1 tbsp garam masala

1 lemon, zested and juiced

150g panko breadcrumbs

3 eggs

25g flat leaf parsley

100g plain flour

2 eggs, beaten




Cucumber pickle:

1 cucumber sliced

100g sugar

Tsp salt

75ml white wine vinegar


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C fan.
  2. First prepare the cucumber pickle by combing all of the ingredients listed for it in a bowl and then pop it in the fridge.
  3. Sauté the garlic, onion, spices and half of the veggie pudding off on a pan over a medium heat with some olive oil. Once the onion is soft, transfer the mixture to a food processor along with half of the chickpeas, half of the juice and zest from the lemon and 25g of panko breadcrumbs. Blitz together until smooth and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Remove the mixture into a mixing bowl and fold in the fresh herbs, the other half of chickpeas, the other half of the veggie pudding and the remaining lemon juice and zest.
  5. From the mixture, shape out 5 patties. They will weigh in roughly at about 150g. Place them into the fridge to firm up for 15-20 mins.
  6. Remove from the fridge and coat each patty in flour, egg and panko breadcrumbs.
  7. Seal the burgers off on a pan with some olive oil over a high heat (2 minutes a side) and then place them into the oven for 20 minutes.
  8. Serve in burger bun along with pickled cucumber, hummus, chunky homemade wedges and salad.
