Will and I have a real hatred of this thing that’s super fashionable these days of making something vegetarian and calling it a meaty name. For example portobello ‘steak’, cauliflower ‘wings’.

It’s just all kinds of nonsense. I’d much rather eat a portobello mushroom that isn’t claiming it’s anything like a steak. I don’t enjoy lying, especially when it comes to food.

Having said all that though I feel like veggie burgers are legit. There’s not a quotation mark in sight because everyone knows that a veggie burger isn’t really pretending to be a burger.

It’s just something that happens to taste brilliant in between a bun with a traditional burger accompaniment or two.

These chickpea quinoa veggie burgers are a wonderful vegetarian meal in their own right. They’re smoky from the paprika and chipotle paste and fresh with juicy tomatoes and avocado on top (totes optional, I had mine without obvs).

The great thing about these burgers is that they’re so filling you can eat them just as is.

The use of quinoa and chickpeas means that they’re full of protein which will keep you full for ages. Plus there’s bread and veg and it’s all round pretty healthy!
