Hey and happy Sunday!
It has been a busy one, and we got to start making things in college on Friday! I might feature a few pictures at the bottom of the post. I am loving it and being creative again makes a world of a difference!
But! One cannot go on and try and be a champ running on no fuel, so let's make some burgers. These are super simple, and really delicious - I can only thank Sue for this recipe. Follow the link below for more of her fantastic recipes!
Vegan Chickpea Burgers
(Makes 5-6 patties)
400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 bay leaves
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried rosemary or thyme
1/2 onion, finely chopped + dash of oil
3 tbsp tomato sauce (ketchup, passata, pasta sauce etc)
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
Cheese (optional, make sure you pick a vegan one for vegan)
Relish or burger sauce
- Start by having the herbs and spices along in a pestle and mortar and crush until fine.
- Lightly fry the onion in some oil for about 5 minutes until soft.
- Mix the spices, chickpeas and onion and blitz with a stick blender until you have a rough sticky dough. Fold in the flour, and shape into patties.
- Fry or grill on either side for a good few minutes until cooked through, and serve with your favourite burger accompaniments!
I just made these farls tonight as well, and I am beat! After a quiet but productive weekend, and not getting much sleep last night - I am going to watch some Community and have an early night.
Today we went on a trip to Ikea and got a few little bits and bobs for the flat, and we enjoyed some food there! Yes, I am Scandinavian and thus I cannot help but feel the magnetic force of the odd canteen in a furniture shop.... Plus, the vegetarian dishes there are actually quite tasty!

Have you been up to much this weekend?
