Chickpea and Pumpkin Burgers

Yes I came up with something new again last night - Chickpea and Pumpkin Burgers or (to use the young peoples phrase) The Forest and Snowy Mountain Delight :-). Just to explain that last one, the 'forest' is the salad and the 'Snowy Mountains' are the burgers topped with the yogurt mix.

It wasn't an exact recipe but I had two cans of chickpeas which I had roughly mashed (some were really crushed, others remained whole), 2 large-ish hunks of cold roast pumpkin (mashed), about 1 T rolled oats and spices - pepper, cumin, ground coriander, paprika and cayenne pepper. This was formed into 7 patties and refrigerated for 30 minutes. I then rolled them in a little flour and cooked them in a fry pan with a little oil.

I also mixed some natural yogurt (Margaret River because I was very fortunate) with sumac which I scooped onto the cooked burgers.

This was all served with a salad made up of fancy lettuce, avocado, fresh asparagus :-), cucumber and cherry tomatoes.
