Chickpea recipes

Recommended Posts

Okay - it is probably taking the chick theme a little too far - but 2 good chickpea recipes. I thoroughly recommend the burgers - they are yummy. I am going to try the soup for lunch tomorrow I think.



2 x cans of chickpeas

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 small onion chopped finely

1 crushed garlic clove

1 red pepper deseeded and finely chopped

1 red chilli deseeded and chopped

salt and pepper


whizz the chickpeas in the blender for a momnet - lightly mix not mush.

heat the olive oil and fry the onion garlic and pepper for 5 mis to soften. Add to the chickpeas with the coriander, chilli, salt and pepper.

Stir to mix. Cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Divide and shape into 8 burgers. Cook and serve with tomato salsa or salad.

Freezing recommended.



2 Tbs sunflower oil

1 red onion chopped

2 crushed garlic cloves

2 tsps cumin seeds

1 tsp mild curry powder

2 tins of chopped tomatoes

6 oz diced carrot

2 oz red lentils

zest and juice of 1 orange

1 can of chickpeas

salt and pepper


heat the oil in a large pan, cook the onion, garlic, cumin seeds and curry powder for 5 mins. Add the tomatoes, carrots, lentils, and orange zest to the pan. Make up the orange juice to 1 pint with water and stir into the soup. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 30 mins, until the carrots are tender.

Allow the soup to cool a bit, puree the soup or use a potato masher to give it a co"Ooops, word censored!" texture. Toss in the chick peas and season to taste. Reheat and serve with croutons.

Freezing recommended.

:lol: I hadn't even noticed about the word chickpea before :roll::lol: how apt!

Mmmmm, thanks for the tips, I'm definitely going to try them both. I love finding ways to disguise lentils too, so the soup sounds ideal. Mmmmm....thanks very much, Chicken Licken! :D

Sound lovely, chicken licken. Will definately try the burgers.


We often have a hot chickpea puree, which is great with roast lamb, and really quick and easy.


Just whizz up some tinned chickpeas in the food processor, with a bit of chilli powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil. S"Ooops, word censored!"e into serving dish and pop in the microwave to heat! :lol::lol:
