  • 1                   Red Onion
  • 3 Tbsp       Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tbsp       Curry Paste
  • 1                   Handful of fresh Parsley

  • 3-4              Green Onions

***Makes about 8 burgers***

Step 1

Rinse the chick peas and then mash them in a large bowl. Make sure it’s a large bowl because all the other ingredients will be joining later on.

Step 2

Grate the carrot and zucchini and add to the chick pea mix.

Step 3

Chop red onion and fry in a small pan with olive oil. Once the onions become slightly transparent (no longer bitter to taste) you can add them to the rest of the ingredients. Add the peanut butter, curry paste, parsley, and a dash of salt and pepper. Mix it all up, mash the ingredients together until it holds together in a paste like form.

Step 4

Form in to the traditional burger shape and fry in that dirty onion pan! Shouldn’t take more than 2 minutes a side. Keep in mind this is edible raw so you don’t need to cook the life out of it.

Step 5

Put it all together on some good quality crusty bread, or inside a pita. Add your toppings, and enjoy!

** For a gluten free alternative just replace the bread with rice. Makes an excellent dish.
