Chickpea, Beef and Cumin Burger Patties
These fresh chickpea, beef and cumin burger patties, despite being super easy to get right, are substantial, super satisfying, packed with protein and are a great sneaky place to hide your veggies. Can you believe this burger contains five different veggies? And that's just within the patty. So tasty, healthy, organic and additive free! Sometimes I make and freeze these babies, it means I can have dinner ready in under 15 minutes if i've had a long day, knowing I'll still get a nutritional feed in to boot.

Instructions
  1. First Let's Prep, We need to remove any moisture from the beef mince, this will stop the patties from breaking apart when cooking. Grab a small amount in one hand and ring it out over the sink. Place dry raw mince in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Strain and rinse the chickpeas. Again ensure these are nice and dry before proceeding to the next step, either by letting them sit for a while or using a paper towel to pat dry.
  3. Add the chickpeas, fresh coriander and curry leaves into a small food processor and process until finely chopped/minced. Set aside.
  4. Finely dice the bell pepper, carrot, broccoli, onions, green chillies, garlic, ginger, fresh coriander and curry leaves.
  5. Top Tip: I like to have all my veggies ready on a plate next to the stove ready for the next step.
  6. We are ready to start cooking: In a large pan heat the oil over a medium heat. Saute the onions, green chillies, garlic and ginger first for about 30 seconds before adding the salt, pepper, cumin, thyme and lime juice. Combine for another 20 seconds and then add in the rest of the veggies.
  7. Allow the veggies to cook on a medium heat for approx 3-4 minutes.
  8. Then turn off the heat, add the chickpea mixture and combine well. Do a salt and pepper taste test here and adjust accordingly.
  9. Let the mixture cool slightly for a few minutes, then transfer to a large bowl. Add in the raw meat and the almond flour. Combine as best you can with a spoon, but then get your hands in there (with some glove if you prefer) to combine the mixture properly.
  10. Roll into small balls to distribute the patty mix evenly and then flatten them slightly with your hand ready to be cooked on both sides. You should get about 7 or 8 patties depending on how large you like them. 
  11. Wipe down the same pan roughly with a paper towel, use a little spray oil on the surface and heat on medium. When hot, add the patties. Cook for approx 4 -5 minutes on each side or until the beef is cooked through. (Make sure you're using a good non-stick pan)
  12. Now you're ready to dress your burger! You can use whatever your heart desires, you don't have to even use burger buns! I used red cabbage, tomato, lettuce on homemade brioche with homemade burger sauce, see the notes for a links to both these recipes. The fun is in making it your own friends, drool and enjoy with love.
