Kerys' and the Adorable Calvy's Hummous Burgers

…continuing the pulse or bust theme of the recipes section, we now have the hummus burger. I think they sound great, actually.

“I know the list of ingredients is a bit long
but it’s honestly dead easy to make. It’s fine to add
the fresh chilli as long as you take the seeds out, I
promise – the result is tasty rather than spicy. But
you might not want to squeeze extra lemon on the baby’s
On a personal note, may I add that I live in South
China where the lychee season is in full swing.
Apparently Annabel Karmel’s books haven’t been
translated into Cantonese yet. It’s a tragedy waiting
to happen.

200g hummus
1 cup soft fresh breadcrumbs
2 tbsp tahini
half tsp ground cumin
3 spring onions, chopped
1 small red chilli, deseeded, very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaf
1 tbsp lemon or lime juice (plus wedges to squeeze
over cooked burger)
2 x 400g cans chickpeas
1 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp dry breadcrumbs
1 cup greek yogurt
2 tbsp virgin olive oil
1 tbsp chopped coriander

Put hummus, fresh breadcrumbs, tahini, cumin, chilli,
garlic, coriander, juice, 1 can of chickpeas in a food processor and whizz till it forms a thick paste. Scrape into a bowl, and stir in the chickpeas. Shape into 8 burgers (you may need more breadcrumbs to get the right texture). Mix dry crumbs with sesame seeds, roll burgers in the mixture, and fry in olive oil on both sides till nice and toasty looking. Stir the yogurt, virgin olive oil and coriander together and serve the burgers with the yogurt sauce, lemon wedges and toasted pitta bread.”
