Seasonal Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten free, Dairy free, Egg free recipe
A brilliant recipe from Bute Island Foods. Healthy, seasonal and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Great for barbecues too!
Dice the onions into roughly 1cm cubes. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Grate the Sheese.
Cook lentils according to instructions on packet (being careful not to overcook), then drain and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Squeeze the water out of the lentils with your hands
In a pan over a medium heat, heat two tablespoons of oil. Add the onions, ginger, chilli and cumin to the pan and sweat gently for 4-5 minutes until the onions have softened. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool.
Once the onions are cool to the touch, put the lentils and chickpeas into a large mixing bowl and using your hands, crush the mixture so there are some whole chickpeas, and some crushed. Add the onions and Sheese and mix thoroughly.
With floured hands, form the mix into the number of burgers you require (the mix will make 4-6 good size burgers). Dip each burger in soya milk, then into the breadcrumbs and place in a hot oiled pan over a low to medium heat and cook for 5-6 minutes each side, turning carefully, until golden brown.
Serve in a fresh bun with relish, tomatoes and lettuce accompanied with some crispy fries.
