Lunchtime Treats

I've been toying with the idea of making falafel burgers for a while but haven't quite found the opportunity to try them out. We decided to spend the day at home yesterday sorting out the house and garden so I had time to potter around the kitchen. I found a recipe on the good food website and I added a little extra myself to produce these .....

This was a really simple recipe - store cupboard ingredients that resulted in a tasty lunch. It's even easier with a food processor. Put the following ingredients into the food processor - 2 cloves of garlic, 1 onion, cut into quarters, 2 green chillies, 1 tsp of ground cumin and 1 tsp of ground coriander, 2 tbsp plain flour and a pinch of salt. Whiz all the ingredients up then add one drained tin of chick peas. Form into 4 or 5 burgers, place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and cook at 200 degrees centigrade for 10-15 minutes, making sure you turn them once. The recipe said to fry them but they worked really well in the oven. This was such an easy recipe that it's likely to be used again and again.
