meat. These cute sliders make great finger food for parties, too.

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp ground cumin

2 x 400g cans chickpeas, rinsed, drained

1 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves

1/3 cup (50g) plain flour, plus extra, to dust

2 tbs olive oil

12 mini brioche buns, split, to serve

Mint leaves, to serve

 

Place the onion, garlic, spices, chickpeas, parsley, flour and

eggwhite in a food processor and whiz to a coarse paste. Season,

then, using floured hands, form mixture into 12 patties. Chill for

30 minutes to firm up.

food processor and whiz until smooth. Chill until ready to serve.
