Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 500g/10 cups coarsely grated mixed carrot and beetroot grated (using the second biggest holes of the grater)
  • 50g/1 cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 tsp toasted and ground cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp paprika powder
  • 2 tins chickpeas, drained and ground roughly in food processor (or crushed with potato masher)
  • 100g ground flax
  • Salt (enough to create good, strong flavour before they are cooked)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6
  2. Fry the onion until lightly browned on a medium heat. Add the garlic and fry for a minute or two.
  3. Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until fully combined but not completely smooth (this is best done using your hands).
  4. Shape the mixture into ten balls and then flatten and shape into burgers (if you are freezing any of the burgers, put them in the freezer at this stage).
  5. Place on a lined baking tray and heat in the oven for around 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. If Barbecuing, heat in the oven for just 20 minutes and then transfer to a hot barbecue. Cook on either side until lightly charred.

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference!
