    Peanut Butter, Chickpea and Courgette Burgers

    Shop Now
    This is a recipe that my flatmate introduced me to a couple of months back and since I'm experimenting with the primal diet I thought I'd share it since I reckon it will fit in nicely if you're looking for an easy to make (and incredibly easy to store in larger batches) meal/snack. A must if you're as keen on peanut butter as I am!

    Should be noted that this originally had bread crumbs in it but I'm sure that it won't make much difference.

    Chick Pea, Courgette, Carrot and Peanut Butter Burgers

    Ingredients
    1 finely chopped onion
    Olive Oil
    1 crushed garlic clove
    2 courgettes - chopped small
    3/4 medium carrots - grated coarsley
    1 tin chick peas (or similar measurement of not tinned)
    4 table spoons crunchy peanut butter
    1 or 2 egg yolks (makes them of different consistency if 2)
    Loads of (3 table spoons) fresh parsley - chopped
    Salt and pepper

    Method

    Fry the onions in the oil for 5 minutes until browned slightly.
    Add the garlic the courgette and the carrot and continue to fry on a reasonably high heat until soft.
    Leave this aside.
    Blend the chick peas until smooth and paste like.
    Scrape into large mixing bowl.
    Mix in fried vegetables.
    Add all other ingredients.
    Mix until it all comes together and then shape into burgers.
    (you can cook them straight away or they freeze really well)

    To Cook - Fry for 5-10 minutes, BBQ or Grill.

    'Fraid that neither peanuts nor chickpeas are Primal--they are legumes and have too many phytates and other phytotoxins....

    I just want to give you a little heads-up before the primal wolf pack on this forum jumps on you for this recipe. Chick Peas and Peanuts are considered legumes, hence not part of the Primal diet. It sounds good, but its not really healthy.

    Well, it sounds interesting and you could have it as your 20% for the reasons cited above. Not too many of us are primal purists, there are lots of hummus eaters around MDA, for example. I have been trying lots of unusual combinations this past year, and might find a way to make this with almond butter and would have to think about a chickpea alternative, maybe swedes? Keep sharing, though.
