The perfect option for vegetarians, or for those fancying something a little squeaky, show off your culinary skills by making this delicious homemade burger and serve with fresh green salad.

What You’ll Need: 

  • 600g courgettes, trimmed and coarsely grated
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 410g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 egg
  • 150g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 75g halloumi, diced
  • 1 yellow pepper, halved and deseeded
  • 1 small aubergine
  • ciabatta slices, toasted

What To Do: 

  • Using your hands, squeeze as much moisture as you can out of the courgettes. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a non-stick pan and add the courgettes. Fry over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes, until the moisture has evaporated.
  • Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and spices and cook for a further minute. Remove from the heat, transfer to a bowl and leave to cool.
  • Blend the chickpeas and egg in a food processor. Add to the courgettes along with the breadcrumbs and mix well. Fold in the halloumi and season to taste. Shape into 6 burgers. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Cut each pepper half into 3 pieces. Cut the aubergine lengthways into 8 slices. Brush the burgers and vegetables with the remaining oil. Barbecue the aubergines for 3 minutes on each side and the burgers and peppers for 5 minutes on each side until piping hot. Serve stacked on ciabatta slices.
