I’m gonna be honest with you. I’m not a big fan of vegetarian food. I love meat, and in most cases I really can’t eat a meal without meat. Today I challenge myself to
make a vegetarian dish I can sit down and enjoy, without the feeling that there is something missing.
I have found that the most important thing when cooking vegetarian food is to add flavor, LOTS of flavor. You have to make your veggies shine. Challenge accepted!
Serving size: 2 pers
Estimated time to prepare: 25 min
400g canned chickpeas
1/2 red onion
3-4 tbs breadcrumbs
1 tsp cumin
1 tbs olive oil
Iceberg lettuce (or your favorite)
Bun of your choice
Rinse and dry the chickpeas. Use a blender or mixer to whizz the chickpeas together with the egg, onion, coriander and the zest and juice of the lemon. Add olive oil, cumin, breadcrumbs and a pinch of salt until you can’t resist eating the mix straight out of the bowl.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan, medium heat. Treat the mixture as scrambled eggs and get some color on it. Cook until the mixture is letting go of your spatula.
Serve with a sliced bun, and some nice salad!
I swear, I did not miss any meat! 😉
