When i was filming a challenge for Youtube – eating only green food – i decided to test making green pea patties.

Usually i find making bean burgers rather hard…. they either crumble apart or are too dry, or if you use too much flour as a binder they can end up tasting rubbery. So basically i don’t make bean burgers so often – not to mention that i am not a huge fan of them either. I find that they often lack texture which i want in my meals… they are too soft or crumbly.
HOWEVER…. i decided to just throw together some ingredients and try making green pea/chickpea burgers, and i was positively surprised with the burgers. Infact, they turned out very good so i thought i would share the “recipe”!
Arond 150-200g peas (boiled/defrosted)
1x 400g can of chickpeas
Salt & pepper
1-2 cloves garlic
1/2 small red onion
Around 100g breadcrumbs (start off with half and add more if necessary)
Around 1tbsp cornstarch
Oil for frying
Begin by boiling the peas. Dice the garlic and onion.
In a bowl mix together the peas, chickpeas (minus the aquafaba), garlic and onion. Mix until it is combined – but not so mixed that it turns into hummus.
Then add your seasoning of choice – and some salt and pepper. Along with the breadcrumbs… start off with half and add more if necessary.
If the mix is too loose, then add some cornstarch or a little flour.
Form into patties and fry on medium heat – turning over after a few minutes.
Eat either warm or cold, works great either way!
Combine these patties with some sauce, rice or roasted potatoes 🙂
