Chickpea and Halloumi Burgers

Chickpea and Halloumi Burgers

These hearty chickpea burgers are a great low-calorie recipe for vegetarians. For a smoky flavour, cook these easy falafel on the BBQ then serve in warm pitta pockets with halloumi and pickled chillies.


  • Chickpeas 2 × 400g tins, drained
  • Ground cumin 2 tsp
  • Ground coriander 1 tsp
  • Green chilli 2, chopped
  • Garlic 2 cloves
  • Spring onions ½ a bunch
  • Coriander ½ a small bunch
  • Salt flakes 1 tsp
  • Plain flour 2 tbsp
  • Halloumi 1 pack, diced
  • Pittas to serve
  • Humous to serve (check out out fabulous recipes to make your own)
  • Little gem lettuce to serve
  • Pickled chillies to serve



Put the first 9 ingredients in a food processor and whizz until broken down. Tip into a bowl, mix in the halloumi, and form into 6 burgers. You can either cook these in a frying pan with a little olive oil until golden or BBQ for 2-3 minutes each side (just brush with oil beforehand to stop them sticking).


Serve in grilled pittas with humous, lettuce and pickled chillies.
