Carrot And Sesame BurgersCarrot And Sesame Burgers

Ingredients
• 750g carrots, (peeled and grated)
• 410g can of chickpeas, (drained and rinsed)
• 1 small onion, (roughly chopped)
• 1tsp ground cumin
• 1 egg
• 3tbsp olive oil
• 100g whole meal breadcrumbs
• 1 lemon zest
• 1tsp lemon juice
• 150ml yogurt
• 6 buns, lettuce leaves, sliced red onion, sliced avocado and chilli sauce, (to serve)

Carrot And Sesame Burgers

METHOD


Put a third of the grated carrot in a food processor with the chickpeas, onion, cumin and egg. Whizz to a thick paste, then scrape into a large bowl. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in your largest frying pan, tip in the remaining carrot and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring until the carrot is softened - it will become more golden as it is cooked. Add this cooked carrot to the whizzed paste with the breadcrumbs, lemon zest and sesame seeds. Add seasoning, then mix together well with your hands. Divide the mixture into 6, then using wet hands shape into burgers. Cover and chill until serving. Mix the yogurt with lemon juice, and then chill. Fire up the barbecue, or heat a non-stick frying pan and brush the burgers with the remaining oil. Cook the burgers for 5 minutes on each side, until golden and crisp. Meanwhile, warm or toast the buns (or sit them on the barbecue alongside the burgers). When the burgers are ready, spread each bun with some of the lemony sesame yogurt, add the avocado, top with the burger, onion and lettuce. Finish with a drizzle of chilli sauce.
