Just thought I'd pop a few recipes on here, soon to be in the pages of Boo Magazine!

Wheat free, dairy free, nut free, meat free. It’s the vegan’s paradise at BBQ time..

- Dessert spoon of oil
- Heat the oven to 170°C
- Put the potato and carrot into a pan, cover with boiling water and a little salt, bring to the boil and cook.
- Drain, put into a big bowl and mash.
- Boil the chickpeas in water according to instructions on the tin. Drain and mash, and add to the potato mixture.
- Sauté the onions in a tbsp of oil for a few minutes until they start to soften.
- Add the chilli then curry powder and cook for one or two minutes, then add the peppers, 2 tbsp of water and cook for a few more minutes until water has nearly evaporated. Add to the potato and chick pea mash.
- Then add the tahini, coriander, garlic and lemon juice to the cooked chickpeas and mix well. Season to taste.
- Tip the oatmeal into a dish.
- Divide the burger mixture into 6, take one portion, mould into burger shape and coat in the oatmeal.
- Then either pan fry quickly on each side until golden and put onto lightly greased baking tray in oven for 10 minutes, or simply put onto the baking tray in oven for 15-20 minutes.
Ok so they’re not cooked on the BBQ, but just bring them outside when they’re done and eat in the lovely sunshine!
Maybe serve with...
Great in wheat free burger buns with lettuce, tomato and dairy free mayo. Also you could try a big old dollop of houmous on there too.
