Posted By: Málaga Food Guide Team – Málaga Province
With the summer upon us, this is a great fake away recipe and ideal for the  BBQ or an alternative for regular hamburgers, it is also suitable for vegetarians.


For the burgers
250g/9oz  jar chickpeas (drained & rinsed)

1 medium onion, very finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander seed
6 tbsp chopped parsley
½ tsp chilli powder
2 rounded tbsp plain flour
1 tsp salt
Oil for deep fat frying

For the hummus and tahini sauce
125g/4½oz hummus
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp tahini
To Serve
4 large rolls (or burger buns)
1  tomato, sliced
1 red onion sliced
4 little gem lettuce leaves


Drain the chickpeas thoroughly and pulse in the food processor until lightly broken up. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to pulse until you have the texture of coarse breadcrumbs. Gently form into patties. Fry in hot oil for 4-5 minutes, or until crisp and golden.

For the hummus and tahini sauce simply whisk together all the ingredients. If you prefer a lighter sauce add a little water until it is the preferred consistency.
To serve, split and warm the rolls. Place the falafel burger on the bottom side of the roll, and some of the sauce .then top with a leaf of lettuce, a slice of tomato, and some red onions, on the side serve with either chips, sweet potato wedges or salad.
