Falafel Burger

The cornerstone of middle eastern food meets the holy grail of fast food to create this wonder: it is both a falafel and a hamburger in one sandwich. And it’s vegan too.

Ingredients (3-4 large patties):
1 cup chickpeas, soaked in water
1 small-medium onion
2 cloves garlic
1 cup of fresh parsley, coriander and mint in your favorite ratio (I use 1/2 coriander, 1/4 parsley, 1/4 mint)
1/2-1 fresh green chili
salt, pepper, cumin

Ingredients (assembly):
Hamburger rolls
Spicy sauce of your liking (I like Harissa)
Salted white cabbage (Just chop cabbage, sprinkle with salt, knead, and let it rest for 20 minutes)
Amba (Iraqi pickled mango) or Indian mango pickle

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor. Let them cool in the fridge for around half an hour. Heat some oil in a shallow pot, should reach a bit above the patty. Fry in high heat until golden brown and solid. Flip and fry for another minute.

Cut the buns, fill with goodness, eat and indulge the magic of the two worlds.
