Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
10 small green bananas

1 240 g tin white chickpeas

1 large onion, minced

1 large clove garlic, minced

4 green chillies

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

3 tsp sesame seeds

Juice and zest of one lemon

1/3 cup coriander

4 tbsp sour cream

1 tsp white pepper

Salt to taste


  • In a small pan, heat the olive oil and gently sauté the onion, garlic, chillies and sesame seeds until aromatic. Don?t let it brown. Set aside.
  • Mash together the peeled green bananas and chickpeas. You could use a food processor but be sure to pulse it briefly because we want some texture in there. Overmixing could also make the mixture too moist.
  • Add in all of the other ingredients for the burgers including the sautéd onions, garlic, sesame seeds and chillies and combine thoroughly.
  • Using your hands, mould the mixture into burger shapes avoiding any cracks.
  • Once all of the mixture is used up, place on a baking tray lined with cling film and cover with more cling film. Refrigerate until you're ready to barbecue them.
