Updated: Apr 6, 2022

Chickpeas improve digestion thanks to their high fibre content. If you are only cooking for 2, make enough for 4, you automatically have another dinner for in the week or  lunches!

Serves 4

Sweet Potato and chickpea burgers

1 large sweet potato (400g)

200g potatoes (use ones that are good for mashing)

400g chickpeas (Tin)

6 spring onions, finely sliced

2 tsp ground coriander

2 tsp ground cumin

1 medium red chill, finely chopped

1 tsp Soy sauce or Tamari Sauce (Gluten Free)

50g sesame seeds (black and/or white)

1 tbsp Olive Oil

Sea salt and Black Pepper for seasoning

Pea Puree

400g of frozen peas

2 garlic cloves

4 heaped teaspoons of Natural yoghurt

How to:

Chop the potatoes up into 2cm cubes, put in a pan of boiling water and then simmer for 20 minutes until cooked. Drain the potatoes and put into a large mixing bowl and roughly mash the potato. It’s fine to leave chunks. Allow to cool.

Rinse and drain the chickpeas place in a separate bowl and mash these roughly, then add to the potatoes and the spring onions.

Put the dry spices into a small bowl and mix up, then add to the mash. Also add the chilli and the soy/tamari sauce. Mix these up so that the spice and spring onions are well combined. Season to taste.

Now make the patties, you should be able to make 8 burgers. Take a burger sized amount of mix and roll into a bowl, then flatten carefully into a burger shape. Make all 8. Then sprinkle the sesame seeds onto a plate and cover your burger with seeds.

Meanwhile, cook your peas in a pan and add the garlic into the water (don’t remove the skin). Once cooked, drain and remove the garlic. Put the peas into the blended, add the yoghurt and season, then remove the skin from the garlic and add to the blender, Blitz.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan (hopefully non-stick) over a medium heat. Add 4 burgers and cook for about 5 minutes before turning, make sure that you don’t burn them. Once you have turned them over, do another 5 minutes and you should be ready to serve. If you need to do the next batch, then put the first batch in the oven to keep warm.

Serve immediately with the pea puree.
