We’re happy to have a great recipe from online reader Madhawee in response to the callout “Calling All Creative Cooks: Contribute Your Original Veggie Burger Recipes”:
Ingredients:1 cup chickpeas, 200g mushrooms, 1 large onion, 1 big tomato, 2 cloves of garlic, half a green pepper, garam masala, five spice powder, salt and pepper to taste, half a cup fresh bread crumbs or whole-wheat flour, and frying oil.
Directions: Boil chickpeas and mushrooms. Put into a food processor. Add tomato and green pepper and process. Cut the onion into rings and stir-fry with garlic and spices. Add the chickpea and mushroom mixture to the pan and fry for a few minutes. Return the mixture to food processor and add bread crumb or whole-wheat flour; process until the mixture turns into a dough. Use your hands to shape the mixture into small burgers. Pan-fry individually. Serve in burgher buns with an onion ring, a tomato slice and sauce of your choice.
