Edamame, chickpeas, tart lemon juice, and fresh herbs are combined to form tasty burgers. They're paired with a herby green dressing made from coriander, mint, creamy tahini, garlic, and a squeeze lemon juice. These burgers are even more delicious when served on toasted sourdough buns with plenty of green dressing, lettuce, hummus, avocado, and sauerkraut. Don't forget the fries!

  1. Add all the ingredients to your food processor and pulse until you get a combined, but chunky consistency. Transfer into a bowl. Test the mix and if it’s quite wet, then add a little more flour.
  2. Shape the mixture into burger patties and pop on a plate. Store in the refrigerator to firm up for 30-60 minutes
  3. Heat a little oil in a frying pan on the medium-low heat.
  4. Coat the burgers in a little more flour then carefully place them in the frying pan (in batches, if you have a small pan).
  5. Cook for 7 -8 minutes, until the base is nice and brown. Flip the burgers carefully and cook for a further 5-6 minutes.

To Make the Dressing:
