Method

  • Process a third of the grated carrot in a food processor with the chickpeas, onion, tahini, cumin and egg. Once well combined, scrape the mixture out into a large bowl.
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in your largest frying pan,  and stir fry the other 2 thirds of the carrot for about 10 mins, until the carrot is softens and turns a golden colour.
  • Add the cooked carrot to the breadcrumbs, lemon zest and sesame seeds. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well with your hands.
  • Divide the mixture into 6, then shape into burgers using wet hands to prevent sticking. Cover and chill until serving.
  • Mix the yogurt with the lemon juice and 2 tbsp tahini and chill this too.
  • Fire up the barbecue, or heat a non stick frying pan and brush the burgers with the remaining olive oil. before cooking them for 5 mins on each side, until golden and crisp.
  • Meanwhile warm or toast the buns by sitting them on the barbecue alongside the burgers.
  • When the burgers are ready, spread each bun half with some of the lemon tahini yogurt, add a few avocado slivers, top with the burger, onion rings and rocket. Finish with a drizzle of chilli sauce or ketchup.
