Claire Wright from addsomeveg.com shares 3 simple ways to prepare carrots that the whole family will enjoy. These burgers are an easy weeknight dinner everyone can have fun making and eating.
What kid doesn’t love burgers? These carrot & chickpea burgers have a sweet and yummy twist – they are veg-filled and really delicious. The real joy of this recipe comes from the kids getting their hands dirty and shaping the patties.
Mix carrots, chickpeas, egg, salt & pepper, dried mixed herbs and breadcrumbs or oats in a food processor to form a smooth, thick paste. Form into 8 patties and fry in a drizzle of olive oil in a pan set over medium heat until cooked through and golden (about 3-4 mins on each side). Serve with your choice of bun, fillings and extras. To make it extra fun for the kids, choose a selection of favourite burger fillings you are happy for them to eat and lay them out in bowls and plates on the table to make it a “build-your-own” burger dinner. They are more likely to eat the veg they choose to put in it themselves!
