Really good veggie burgers make me so excited! There’s nothing more fun than a family burger night with ALL the fixings, especially when it doesn’t have to include any meat. These chickpea spinach burgers are a gorgeous green colour and bursting with flavour. You can also shape them into balls before you put them in the oven and create a falafel style dish to eat on top of salad. I really can’t recommend this recipe more highly.

If you are using dried chickpeas, rinse, soak overnight, and boil according to the packet instructions. Alternatively, use chickpeas from a can.

Place all ingredients in a deep bowl and mix thoroughly together with a large spoon. Then use a hand blender to mix all the ingredients into a smooth consistency. It’s ok if there are a few chickpea chunks left, but you want the spinach and coriander to be well blended.

Line your baking sheet with parchment. Then use your hands to make burger-size patties and place them on the baking sheet. Cook for 25 at 175C/350F – flip once while cooking to ensure they’re cooked through evenly.

Serve with all the fixings! I like to add lettuce, onion, tomato, and avocado to my buns.
