I have to admit I do love a good chickpea recipe. Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are delicious and also contain protein, fibre, folate, manganese, and even some iron, phosphorus and copper. If you love chickpeas, then this is a great recipe and a delicious and easy alternative to hummus.

With the start of Spring in Australia people also start to look for more summer foods such as burgers! This is a great recipe to give you some veggies with your burgers in case they get missed as a side dish😳. I know it happens. So hide some veggies in there where no one can see them and know your family is having a complete meal all in one. Add some seasoning of your choice to mix it up!
