The beauty of these burgers is that they are super-fast, super-tasty and super-simple. The name ‘Smash Burger’ comes from the technique of smashing the ball of mince into a screaming hot cast iron pan or onto a hot plate, allowing the patties to crisp up beautifully.
This Nici Wickes recipe makes it easy to nail vegetarian burgers from scratch. The apple keeps these chickpea and quinoa patties moist as well as adding a wonderful tart-sweet flavour. Serve with salad and brioche buns
