Ah the oh so versatile chickpea. This little guy is packed with goodness and is amazing in a multitude of dishes. From the humble houmous to the mighty meringue, we make a multitude of dishes with chickpeas, and this one is one of the best!
- 1 tin of chickpeas
- 1 onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 slice of bread (made into breadcrumbs)
- 2 tablespoons of Dunns River Original Fry Mix
- Zest of a lime
- 2 tablespoons of polenta
- 2 tablespoons oil
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan and fry the onion until soft. Add the garlic and fry for 1 minute.
Remove from the heat. Add the onion, chickpeas, breadcrumbs, lime zest and Dunns River Fry mix to a food processor and whizz until smooth and combined.
Shape the mixture into burgers with your hands or a burger press if you’re jazzy.
Pop the polenta on a small plate and gently press the burgers into the polenta until lightly covered.
Heat the remaining oil in a pan and fry until golden brown.
Serve in a bun, on its own, with chips, wedges, or a bit of everything. Enjoy.
