2016 has been designated the International Year of Pulses (IYOP). So, on top of the 129 United Nation’s calendar events, every day is leg(ume) day. While I am patiently waiting for the first Day (Jan 27th) I thought I would begin my year of legume appreciation.
I am a big fan of Pulses, they’re a great source of protein and iron for all of us non-meat eaters and are really versatile. I really love a good chickpea burger. Here is a recipe for my favourite chickpea patties (I tend to just put stuff in until it is the right consistency so no quantities sorry):
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1 egg
- sweet chili sauce
mash these all together then add the following:
- chopped spring onions
- and some salt and pepper/ any other herbs you want to add
They make super delicious burgers I especially like to have them with beetroot relish.
In other legume deliciousness in honour of the IYOP this will finally be the year I try to make dahl. I have been meaning to do this for ages so if anyone has a good recipe let me know…
Until the 27th
