I love some beetroot almost as much as chickpeas, these gluten free and meat free burgers make use of both of these delicious ingredients, combined with gentle spicey flavours they make a lovely vegetarian alternative to burgers, great served with a salad or even with a BBQ.

Method

1. Drain a can of chickpeas and place in a food processor.

2. Peel and chop the red onion, roughly chip the spring onions and grated the beetroot. Place all in the food processor with the chickpeas.

3. Add the lemon juice, oats, egg, garlic, chilli powder, cayenne pepper and black pepper to the rest of the ingredients. Blend in the food processor for a minute until you get a paste.

4. Grease or use Frylight in a frying pan and grease/spray crumpet rings. Once hot spoon the mix into the crumpet rings, we find the mix is a little too runny to create and effective burger without the aid of a crumpet ring, it just helps to keep them more stable.

5. Fry for 3-4 mins on each side until well browned.
