National Burger Day: Falafel Burger Recipe


How to make Veggie Burgers: Falafel Flavour



A 250g tin of chickpeas

1 medium onion

2 garlic cloves

2 tsp ground coriander

10g (2 tsp) of ground cumin

Flat-leaf parsley

30g of plain flour

1 spray of Frylight Sunflower Oil Spray


4 burger buns



Drain and dry the chickpeas before giving them a short blast in the food processor. They should be broken down into a crumb-like texture.

Chop the onion and parsley, crush the garlic and add them, as well as the spices and flour into the food processor. Pulse again until they are thoroughly mixed.

Scatter in the coriander and cumin and pulse again, before scooping out the mixture and shape it into 4 veggie patties of an even shape and size.

In a griddle pan, spray the oil and cook the falafels on each side for about 2-3 mins or until they are golden in colour.

Spread a bit of hummus on each side of your burger buns, before placing a delicious Vegetarian Burger in there and top up with a little salad or tomato as garnish.
