  • 4 burger buns I used brioche buns
  • 400 g tin chick peas drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil plus extra for frying
  • 1 tsp caraway or cumin seeds toasted
  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs toasted
  • 70 g flat-leaf parsley or coriander finely chopped, include the stalks
  • 150 g raw beetroot
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 1 pinch flaked sea salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

To serve (any combo of the following)

  • smoky avocado and chipotle mayo
  • little gem lettuce
  • sliced tomato
  • gherkins cut lengthways into 3mm slices
  • red onion very finely sliced
  • China rose radish sprouts
  • Impatient Rainbow pickles
  • fried egg
  • cheese any you like


  • Blitz all the ingredients for the burger, apart from the beetroot, flour and seasoning, in a food processor with the main chopping blade.
  • Switch to a grating blade and grate the beetroot on top. Tip into a large bowl.
  • Shape the mixture into four even burgers. Combine the flour salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.
  • Dust the burgers with the seasoned flour.
  • Pour enough oil into the frying pan for shallow frying and place over a medium heat.
  • Add the burgers and fry for 6-8 minutes, until browned.
  • Flip over and brown on the other side. Check that the burgers are hot in the middle by inserting the tip of a sharp knife into the centre for a few seconds and then pulling it out: if the blade feels cold, cook the burgers for longer. If the outside browns too quickly, turn the heat right down.
  • Serve with your choice of toppings.
