***If sad insert burger***

aloha all & happy Saturday. I’ve been blogging for over a year now so I think it’s fair to say a vegan burger recipe is well & truly due.

I like burgers & usually when you eat out a lot of the veggie burgers are suitable for vegans – just hold the cheese & the mayo. Most veggie burgers are made of beans, mushrooms & in this instance chickpeas.

Chickpeas are a relatively new fav for me, a few months ago I made & shared a lemon, chickpea & avocado wrap when I was looking for new packed lunch ideas & this is where my chickpea love affair began.

Reasons chickpeas are the bomb:
1. They are cheap
2. They are good little protein boosters
3. They are low in fat/cals (yay)
4. They are versatile – down for anything

So when I wanted to try and whip together a vegan burger the other night, chickpeas seemed liked a good idea. This recipe is ridiculously easy to cook and pretty quick too. Boil, saute, blitz then bake – finito.

On another note – I visited an amazing new raw vegan restaurant in Dubai yesterday – Be Supernatural Kitchen & the food was fab.

If you are in Dubai be sure to check them out in Dubai mall – I had lunch with the lovely Natalia (Think Natalia) & I am feeling so inspired – roll on 2017! Can you believe we are in the final weeks of 2016 – where has the year gone? I hope you all have a fab weekend & enjoy the burgers! Jess xx
