  • ground cumin 2 tsp
  • ground coriander 1 tsp

  • burger buns 6, toasted
  • beef tomato 6 slices

  • Step 1

    Put the cabbage in a bowl with the lemon juice and a good pinch of salt. Toss together and leave while you make the burgers.

  • Step 2

    Put the chickpeas, spices, green chillies, garlic, spring onions, coriander and flour in a food processor with 1 tsp of sea salt and whizz until well broken down. Tip into a bowl, then shape into 6 burgers with your hands. Chill for 30 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan, then fry the burgers for 4-5 minutes each side until really crisp and golden.

  • Step 4

    Mix the hummus, yogurt and some seasoning, then spread on both sides of the toasted buns. Put some cabbage on the bottom buns, top with the burgers, a slice of tomato, a pickled chilli, some hot sauce and the bun tops, and serve.
