Hi, here is a very versatile recipe. Burgers are always a huge success. Especially if you have children, this is a nice way to offer legumes or vegetables. This is a very spicy and tasty version, that I use as a starter or a light second course.


  • Beans 8,8 oz
  • Chickpea flour 1 tablespoon
  • ¼ onion
  • 10 parsley twigs
  • 5 coriander twigs
  • 1 cm of ginger
  • cucrcuma 1 coffeespoon
  • ground pistachio nuts 1 tablespoon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • corn flour (for breading)
  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a mixer: put the onion, the parsley and the coriander all together and mix. Add the beans, the chickpea flour, the grated ginger, the curcuma, the pistachio nuts and the salt.
  2. With your hands create a ball and put it in the fridge for about 15 minutes, covered by plastic wrap.                                                                   
  3. Then create 10/12 balls (like golf balls 😉 ) and cover them with the cornflour. Squash them to obtain mini burgers.                                                                             
  4. Put the pan on fire with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
  5. Cook the burgers for 2 min; then flip them and cook for another 2 min.
  6. They will be soft and tasty.
  7. Serve with a fresh salad or with a sauce.

Buon appetito!
