Homemade veggie burgers? 


Why yes please!

You can't beat them and today I'm sharing my latest veggie burger recipe, for spiced chickpea, carrot and coriander burgers. I whizzed them up in my blender and they are totally dairy free and vegan.

A good veggie burger really doesn't need egg to bind it or any dairy. The vegetables and pulses with spices are tasty enough and the chickpeas in this burger are the binder.

These burgers are fresh, tasty and fast!


These are really simple burgers made with tinned chickpeas, carrots. spring onions, garlic, herbs, spices, peanut butter and oats.

A really easy recipe, but they taste great. The burgers took minutes to make and a few more to cook. I served with on buns with salad leaves, cucumber, pickled beetroot and American mustard, but you could add your favourite toppings.


How healthy?


Very healthy! Even better they are only 257 calories each. If you were really watching your weight, I'd say leave out the peanut butter which would save you another 24 calories per burger, taking them down to 233 calories each. Not bad! They are also high in protein, vitamin A and Iron, which has to be a win.


Burgers in a blender?


I used my blender to make these burgers. I'm a great fan of quick meals as you know.

Actually I've upgraded my blender to the Optimum G2.3 blender from Froothie. Let me tell you a bit more about it.






Optimum G2.3 Blender



It's a beauty isn't it? It does have a big price tag, but it's really quiet for a power blender and it's very powerful.  It's top of the range at £599, but if you don't have the budget for this one, check out their Optimum 9400 which also comes with a smaller jug and is a great piece of kit too, but a better price at £299 (it's on sale right now). If you would like free delivery on any of their products, just add '1405 free ambassador delivery' to the comments box at checkout and the delivery charge will be credited back to your card.

The Optimum G2.3 

  1. It has an induction motor so it's a lot quieter than other power blenders.
  2. It has 6 blades for a really smooth blender, even with tough greens or nuts.
  3. It has 1500w of power
  4. It has a second smaller jug for recipes like nut butter, hummus and pesto.
  5. The small jug has two blades that scrape down the sides as it blends.
  6. It self cleans in seconds. Just add some hot water from the kettle and a few drops of washing liquid, then blend.
  7. It has 6 pre-programmed one-touch settings for Fruit, Sorbet, Vegetables, Soup and Grind.
  8. It has a lifetime motor and 5 year parts guarantee.
  9. It rocks! (and can blend rocks!)
I love that it is much quieter than my last blender, but still has the power. In fact it's even more powerful. The pre-programmed buttons in the digital display make blending a breeze and it's so easy to clean. The big bonus is the free second jug which scrapes down the sides as it blends, making it great for nut butters and hummus.

Back to the recipe, which has a seal of approval from my boys, who loved them.

  2. Oh, good Lord... food porn and kitchen porn in one post! I honestly don't know whether I'm drooling more over the burger or that blender!

    The burger hero image though... ! Right now, I'm hearing the Marks and Spencer voice-over, telling me that this is not any burger...

    Ha ha!

    (Love that chopping board too, BTW!)

  3. I have an Optimum blender too and love it. I'd never thought of blending raw carrot into anything like this, but of course with a powerful blender anything is possible. I'll definitely be giving this a go, thank you
