I don’t understand why so many people pity my because I can’t/ don’t want to eat many things!! I have the best burgers in the world, I don’t miss nothing at all!! :-D

May I introduce: my falafel burger with hummus, roasted onions, mushrooms, avocado, lettuce and tomato. Incredibly delicious and a huge mess while eating! But that’s just the way it has to be, I think.

They are called falafel burgers because the burger pattie contains pretty much everything you need to make falafel.

What’s all this chatter, here are the ingredients:

For the burger patties (makes 6 patties):

  • 300 g chickpea flour
  • 400 ml of warm water
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 handfuls of chickpeas
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 3 tablespoons sesame
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp salt
  • pepper

For the topping I had:

  • tomatoes
  • avocado
  • fried onions (cut 1 onion into rings and fry in a little olive oil and sprinkle with a tablespoon flour)
  • mushrooms (1-2 minutes turned around without anything in the pan)
  • lamb’s lettuce
  • hummus (here is my recipe for super creamy hummus)
  • mustard
  • sprouts

Serve with my super sweet potato fries and avocado mayo, if you want!


  1. Cut the onion very small, bruise chickpeas roughly with the flat side of a large knife, chop the parsley and then put all the ingredients from chickpea flour to pepper in a large bowl and mix together vigorously.
  2. Season to taste, if something is missing (e.g. salt, pepper, cumin, according to taste) and then let sit for one hour.
  3. Meanwhile, you can make the hummus and fry the onions and mushrooms.
  4. After an hour heat the pan, pour in heat-resistant olive oil properly (I use the olive oil from byodo, you can get it at Alnatura), form palm-sized patties and fry about 3 minutes on each side.
  5. Then create your own burger, depending on gusto, open your mouth veeeery far, and take a bite! yum!


Cheers, Steffi

PS: We all agreed that the falafel burger patties perfectly fit on a burger, but would be a little to dry to eat pure ;-)
