Waltzing About

This coming May I will be leaving my life as a 19 year old uni student and traveling with two of my best friends (separately) around Europe, specifically England, the eastern border of France and then living in Paris for 4 months. This blog will chronicle this journey and untill then depict my planning for this adventure.

Chickpea and Sweet Potato Veggie Burger

Having had enough of tomatoes and pasta for a while, I decided a change was in order! These veggie burgers are scrummy and even better, are super quick and easy to make.

-400g chickpeas
-1 large sweet potato
-1 onion, sliced
-3 cloves garlic
-large bunch corriander
-1/2 lemon zested
-1/2 tsp coriander ground
-1/2 tsp cumin ground
-2 tblspn olive oil


Preheat your oven to 180 degrees, while waiting for it to heat up peel and chop up the sweet potato. Place the potato in a oven proof dish along with the ground spices, half the oil and a good pinch of salt. Toss to coat the potato in the spices and cook in oven for 30 minutes or until soft and slightly brown.

Gently fry the onion and garlic in the rest of the oil. Add a little salt to the onions to stop them from burning. When golden and translucent take off the heat and leave to cool slightly.

Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and crush. You can do this either in a food blender, with a stick blender or with a fork depending on what texture you like. I mashed the chickpeas with a fork as I fancied the chunkier texture.

Finely chop the coriander and add to the chickpeas along with the lemon zest and onion mixture. Mix to combine.

When the potato is cooked, add to the chickpea mixture and mash it lightly with a fork to combine. Flavour to taste.

To cook the burgers, shape the mixture into roughly twelve balls (about golf ball size) and fry a couple at a time in a non stick pan. I use a dry pan as I find adding oil causes the burgers to disintegrate. 

Enjoy with salad, salsa and a toasted pita bread.
