Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 onions, sliced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 teaspoon chilli powder
100g baby spinach
400g tinned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup coriander leaves
100-150g breadcrumbs
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 slices bread
2 tomatoes, sliced
mixed salad leaves, to serve

Beetroot salsa

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 beetroots, peeled and grated
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
freshly ground black pepper
salt

Method

  1. Heat half of the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the onion, cumin, coriander, paprika and chilli. Lower the heat and cook for 20 minutes, stirring often, until the onions soften. Add the spinach and cook until wilted.
  2. Combine the onion mixture, chickpeas, egg, coriander leaves and enough breadcrumbs to bring the mixture together. Season to taste. Divide the mixture into 8 balls and flatten into burger patties.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a heavy-based frypan over a medium heat and cook the burgers until golden brown, approximately 5–6 minutes on each side.
  4. For the beetroot salsa, combine the mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl and pour over the beetroot. Stir through the chives and season with salt and pepper.
  5. To assemble, arrange tomato slices and a handful of salad leaves on each slice of bread. Place two hot chickpea burgers on each slice and top with a spoonful of beetroot salsa.
