This simple take on a fast food classic is child's play
7-8 minutes to prepare, 6 minutes to cook
Little chef: Mix the chickpeas, pesto and flour together in a food processor. Or put everything into a big mixing bowl and use a potato masher to bash the ingredients together. Little bashes will keep the mixture in the bowl. Put a damp cloth under the bowl to stop it from moving as you mash.
Big chef and little chef: If you are using a food processor, ask a grown-up to remove the blade when you have finished. Mould 6-8 burgers with floured hands. Put in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Big chef: Heat a frying pan with a little oil until it is hot.
Big chef: Fry the burgers on both sides until they are brown and crispy (2-3 minutes each side).
Always have a grown-up in the kitchen when you cook
