Beetroot and Chickpea Fritters – #burgers by any other name! A veggie #burger, no less!
Beetroot used to be such a maligned vegetable, as some of us remember from the overuse of it in school dinners, but here it provides the basis of a family meal which cost pennies to produce.
Dawn: It was quite labour intensive, especially as the beetroot is always messy to prepare.
Andrew: Yes, even with a food processor, you have a lot of washing up, but the end product is quite amazing.
150g beetroot- raw, and peeled
2 tbsp olive oil
One can (400g) of chickpeas or the equivalent weight of dried chickpeas, soaked overnight and cooked thoroughly
Salt and pepper to season
More olive oil to cook
- Either grate the beetroot using the course side of a grater or use the grater setting on your food rocessor.
Dawn: We suggest you use rubber gloves and wear an apron. Beetroot juice will stain your clothes and your skin.
