  • chickpeas 400g tin, rinsed and drained
  • ground cumin 1 tsp
  • hot green chilli 1-2, finely chopped
  • raw beetroot 250g, peeled and grated (wear gloves to avoid staining your hands)
  • parsley chopped to make 2 tbsp
  • fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs 50g
  • egg 1
  • olive oil

  • halloumi 4 or 6 slices, each halved
  • rocket a handful
  • small buns (brioche if you can get them) 8 or 12, split and cut side toasted
  • chilli jam to serve


  • Step 1

    Put the chickpeas in a bowl and mash them roughly, add the cumin and chilli and mash again. Add the beetroot, parsley, breadcrumbs and egg and plenty of seasoning. Mix well and form into 8 or 12 small patties.

  • Step 2

    Heat about 1 cm of oil in a frying pan and fry the patties on each side until they are crisp and brown. Drain on kitchen paper. Fry the halloumi briefly until it starts to brown a little. Put a few rocket leaves on the base of each bun, add a patty and a slice of halloumi followed by a spoon of chilli jam then put the lid on. A cocktail stick will hold the lot together. Serve 2 or 3 per person.
