  • 2 x 400g tins chickpeas, drained (480g, or ~ 2 1/2 cups, in total when drained)
  • 100 g (~ 1 cup) grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • Oil spray


  • Add the two drained tins of chickpeas to a food processor, along with the grated cheese, garlic powder, mixed herbs, and salt and pepper. Blitz until roughly chopped (you may need to scrape down the sides once or twice).
  • Next, add the eggs to the food processor, and blitz again until well combined.
  • Line a baking tray with non-stick foil, and spray lightly with oil. Remove the blade from the food processor and, using clean hands, form the mixture into burger shapes. I made 4 large burgers, but you could stretch the mixture to make 6 smaller burgers if you prefer. Place the burgers on the baking tray, and bake at 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F) for around 30-40 minutes, until the burgers are firm and golden brown.
