Gluten free falafel burger recipe

Published 19 October, 2006

Sorry about the gluten-free-recipe-less day yesterday. Gluten free wifie had her pals in so I couldn't get to the laptop. But we did have a quick and tasty gluten free tea last night - falafel burgers. Super-healthy, and the kids will love them too.

The falafel burgers only take about 15 mins to make so you can whip them up at short notice, and you're likely to have the ingredients in the cupboard.

Gluten free falafel burgers

2 * 400g cans chickpeas (we only had one tin so we replaced one with a tin of black beans)
1 small onion, roughly chopped
A handful of parsely leaves
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
4 tablespoons gluten free flour, plus a bit extra for dusting
4 tbsp olive oil

Put everything except the oil into a food processor and pulse until the mixture turns to a chunky paste. Tip the paste onto a floured surface and form into 6-8 burger shaped patties. (Tip: If you have time to chill the mixture it is easier to work, but we got away without doing this)

Fry in the oil until crispy and browned on both sides. Serve with salad, gluten free burger buns, or whatever you fancy.

Tip: a nice sharp salsa or onion salad is good with the falafel burgers.

I think you could play about with this recipe quite a bit - some fresh coriander would be good at the last minute and you could encrust them in sesame seeds. Let us know if you come up with any good twists on the gluten free falafel burger.
