Falafel and halloumi burgers

  • serves 6
  • Easy

A great low-calorie recipe for vegetarians. A hearty chickpea burger stuffed into a pitta pocket. For a smoky flavour, try cooking these easy-to-make falafel on the BBQ then serve in warm pitta with traditional pickled chillies.



  • chickpeas 2 × 400g tins, drained
  • ground cumin 2 tsp
  • ground coriander 1 tsp
  • green chilli 2, chopped
  • garlic 2 cloves
  • spring onions ½ a bunch
  • coriander ½ a small bunch
  • salt flakes 1 tsp
  • plain flour 2 tbsp
  • halloumi 1 pack, diced
  • pitta to serve
  • houmous to serve
  • little gem lettuce to serve
  • pickled chillies to serve


  • Step 1

    Put the first 9 ingredients in a food processor and whizz until broken down. Tip into a bowl, mix in the halloumi, and form into 6 burgers. You can either cook these in a frying pan with a little olive oil until golden or BBQ for 2-3 minutes each side (just brush with oil beforehand to stop them sticking).

  • Step 2

    Serve in grilled pittas with houmous, lettuce and pickled chillies.
