  • 1/2 onion, chopped and sauted
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly chopped and sauted
  • 20 g mushroom, roughly sliced and sauted
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp tamarin
  • 1/4 tsp allspice

  • Dice half an onion and saute for 10 min in the pan
  • Finely chop 2 cloves of garlic and add to onion, saute for 2 min
  • Slice the mushroom and saute with onion and garlic until they are soft (around 10 min)
  • Take the pan from the hob and add all ingredients to the food processor with chickpeas, beans and all the spices
  • Pulse to the desired consistency, the mix does not have to be smooth, I like it with some chunks
  • From the patties (you should get around 8) and fry on the pan 2 min each side or bake in the oven for 10 min; you can fry some and the rest you can freeze
  • Serve with fresh salad leaves and a light dressing, mushroom sauce and cashew non-mayo
