    Hi, I use my food processer and whizz up carrots, onion, peppers, mixed beans, seasoning and an egg yolk, and make them into "burgers" and fry in fry light. I love them. Best of all you can have them with chips and beans and they are FREE!!!!!!!!!

    Pete’s Vegetarian Burgers

    Makes 12
    2 Syn

    Ingredients

    500g/3 large carrots
    1 onion
    400g chickpeas or cannelloni beans
    1 tsp cumin powder
    1 tsp “very lazy” ginger
    1 tsp “very lazy” chillies
    1 tsp “very lazy” garlic
    Handful of basil leaves
    1 egg
    1 celery stick
    2 slices of wholemeal bread from a 400g loaf
    * Sweet corn if you like it
    Method


    In a food processor reduce the bread to breadcrumbs, remove and set aside.

    Put the other ingredients into the processor in small amounts until all has been reduced to a slightly lumpy constituency, then tip into a large mixing bowl, add the breadcrumbs and mix,*add sweet corn if required, using your hands scoop up a small quantity and mould in your hands, then place on a flat tray covered in greaseproof paper, flatten with the palm of the hand, continue until the mix has been used up, usually makes about 12 depending on how big each one is.

    Place in the freezer for at least 2 hrs or longer to firm up.

    Cook in a pan sprayed in Fry Light for at least 5 mins on both sides or until cooked, depends on the size of each “burger” or cook on a barbeque.
