Chilli Falafel Burgers

This is an incredibly quick and easy way to make delicious spicy falafel burgers, just whiz the ingredients together, shape into burgers of desired size and chill for 10-20 minutes before frying. Great served on an oven bottom muffin with some lettuce, hummus, chilli sauce and topped with grilled halloumi cheese.

From the list of ingredients it might look like it will be too dry but once blended it forms the perfect consistency to form into patties and chilling them first allows them to bond together nicely so they don’t fall apart when fried.
