Here is another lovely recipe I was emailed by Marie (from Traits).
I really enjoyed them as burger patties even though I’m a little uncomfortable with the taste of ginger. It won’t replace my standard comfort burger but it will be a nice change when I feel like going a little more gourmet.
I’ve included Marie’s email text below as I love the way she writes. If you have recipes for me to try email them to me at Kim@WhatKimAte.co.nz.
Pumpkin and Ginger Felafels
“Here is a recipe from Allyson Grofton (food in a minute lady).
We had them just as described but I think would be magic as burger patties! (and can be a change from the regular tofu patty.)
– 250gms firm pumpkin
– 425 gm can cannellini (butter) beans. Drained
– 2 tsp minced fresh garlic
– 1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
– 1 tbsp chopped fresh chilli
– 3 cups fresh bread crumbs
– oil for frying
– 200 gm tub hummus
– 1/2 cup yoghurt
– mango salsa ingredients
Mix the hummus and yoghurt together – cover and back to fridge
In a bowl combine all the mango salsa ingredients – cover and back to fridge
Peel & cook pumpkin in a little boiling water, drain and then put back into pan to dry it out – a couple of minutes, just to its not too wet. In a processor (I don’t have one so I used a potato masher) cannellini beans, garlic, ginger, chilli and 1/2 breadcrumbs.
Season with salt and pepper.
Mould into 12 patties (or burger sized patties) and roll in remaining breadcrumbs.
Fry with a little oil until golden and heated through, keep warm while others are being cooked.
Serve as it or with a plain salad or make mega burgers!
Andrew loves this and I’m looking forward to getting out the barbie and making these bad boys in summer. Keep up the great blog!
