Ingredients:handful of spinach (stems and all)
handful of rocket
½ bunch coriander (stems and all)
½ bunch dill 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
200g tin chickpeas, drained
400g tin cannellini beans, drained
130g chestnut mushrooms
100g oat flour (or any flour you have)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
For the flax egg:
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
3 tbsp water
- In a food processor, on a low speed, pulse your spinach, rocket, fresh herbs and garlic for 20 seconds into a pastelike consistency. Next, add your chickpeas, beans, peas, mushrooms, oat flour and extra virgin olive oil and pulse again, until you have a rough paste.
- Preheat your oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. In a separate small mixing bowl, make your flax egg by mixing the flax seeds with the water and whisking with a fork for one minute. Allow this to sit for five minutes to coagulate, then add your flax egg to the paste in the processor and blend. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and mix in the spices, using your hands, making sure everything is evenly combined.
- Using your palms, shape the mixture into six small burger patties and place them on a baking tray (no parchment is needed). Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges start to crisp and brown
- Serve on a bun with crisp lettuce, sliced tomato, red onion and homemade chips (and don’t forget the chocolate milkshake!).
