Easy falafel burgers
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Whizz up chickpeas with garlic, spices and herbs to make delicious vegetarian patties for lunch or dinner
- STEP 1
Drain, rinse and dry the chickpeas thoroughly, then tip into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until lightly broken up into coarse crumbs.
- STEP 2
Add the onion, garlic, spices, parsley, flour and some seasoning, and continue to pulse until combined. Using your hands, gently form the mixture into 4 patties about 10cm in diameter and 2cm thick.
- STEP 3
In a large pan, heat the oil and fry the falafels on each side for 2-3 mins or until golden (you may need to do this in batches). Lightly griddle the burger buns on the cut side in a griddle pan, or toast under the grill.
- STEP 4
Spread one side of each bun with hummus, top with a falafel burger, add a handful of watercress, then pop the remaining bun half on top.
