For the patties
1 x 400g tinned chickpeas, drained
1 x 340g tin sweetcorn, drained
50g (2oz) fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
bunch spring onions, chopped
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp mild chilli powder
3 tbsp plain flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tbsp olive oil
6 burger buns, lightly toasted
1 x 70g bag wild rocket

For the sauce
1 x 400g tinned chopped tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
pinch sugar

In a food processor, briefly whizz the chickpeas with the sweetcorn, breadcrumbs, spring onions, cumin, chilli, flour and seasoning, until the mixture comes together. With lightly dusted hands, shape into 6 patties; chill.

Meanwhile, make the tomato sauce. In a small pan, bring the tomatoes, garlic, paprika and sugar to the boil. 

Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until thickened; season to taste.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the burgers, in batches, over a medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side (keep warm in the oven, if necessary).
Alternatively, to cook the burgers on the barbecue, lightly brush with oil, place onto the barbecue grill (medium/high heat) and cook for 3-4 minutes, turning at regular intervals to make sure they don’t brown too much.
To assemble, top the toasted bun bases with a burger, a spoonful of tomato sauce and some rocket. Top with the bun lids.
