Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Cook the bulghar in a small pan of water for 5 mins. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the onions and garlic, stirring, for 5 mins or until starting to turn golden. Add the carrots and chilli, and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 mins until the carrots soften. Add the cumin, ground coriander, coriander stalks and lime zest, and stir well.

  2. Tip the chickpeas into a bowl and crush with a masher or fork, then add the eggs and miso to form a chunky paste.

  3. Drain the bulghar well and stir into the spicy vegetables. Take off the heat, shape into eight burgers and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until firm and starting to turn golden.

  4. For the slaw, combine all the ingredients in a big bowl with the lime juice and coriander leaves. Serve with the burgers and lime wedges for squeezing over.

These were lovely. I served 1 burger each with a homemade chicken and lemongrass patty and the 2 went together well. I used thai basil instead of mint in the slaw and served with pita breads

Went down with the whole family - we have one vegetarian in the family so I am always on the look out for recipes that everyone likes. I would never think of putting miso in and thought it added an extra dimenstion. I wouldn't change the recipe in any way, it worked really well. Didn't look at the coleslaw recipe but made my own! Will definitely make again. Didn't really find it too much of a faff - grated the carrot and onion in the food processor which I then used for the chickpeas to whizz up afterwards. You can cook the carrot and onion together to speed things up!

This took quite a while to prepare (even with a food processor to shred and grate), so it's certainly not one for your average week-night in our house. I really enjoyed it, though - -and, much to my surprise, so did my chickpea-hating, salad-avoiding husband, who said he loved both the burgers and the slaw.

I love this recipe but oh my goodness 15 mins is not a realistic prep time when you don't have all the latest gadgets! Didn't stop me making it again though!

I lreally liked this. I make various versions of chickpea burgers regularly and will definitely add this one to my repertoire. I thought the miso added real substance to the flavour. I loved the slaw, too. So this is not a 'useful' comment but just to say this recipe works well exactly as is, and makes a tasty dinner.

Nice taste but this misses some sauce. Wether it is a simple tahini and lemon sauce, some yoghurt or such as otherwise it is far too dry even with the so called slaw. Here is another problem with the recipe. What and how much is a small white cabbage? I opted for Chinese cabbage and eyeballed the acidic components but it was a bit "meh". I would serve this with a tabouleh and some tzatziki style yoghurt mixture instead.

A really nice meat free burger - I think a step is missing of combining the chickpeas and the bulgar vegetable mix.

Try using a hand blender to mash the chickpeas
