1/2 cup chickpea flour (also known as garbanzo flour or besan)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons water
For serving: salsa, avocado, hummus, cashew cream (optional)
Prepare the vegetables and set aside. Preheat a 10-inch skillet over medium heat.
In a small bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper, baking powder, and optional red pepper flakes.
Add the water and whisk well until no clumps remain. I like to whisk it for a good 15 seconds to create lots of air bubbles in the batter.
Stir in the chopped vegetables.
When the skillet is pre-heated (a drop of water should sizzle on the pan), spray it liberally with olive oil or other non stick cooking spray.
Pour on all of the batter (if making 1 large pancake) and quickly spread it out all over the pan. Cook for about 5-6 minutes on one side (timing will depend on how hot your pan is), until you can easily slide a pancake flipper/spatula under the pancake and it’s firm enough not to break when flipping. Flip pancake carefully and cook for another 5 minutes, until lightly golden. Be sure to cook for enough time as this pancake takes much longer to cook compared to regular pancakes.
Serve on a large plate and top with your desired toppings. Leftovers can be wrapped up and placed in the fridge. Reheat on a skillet until warmed throughout.

900g squash, peeled and cut into small chunks (about 2cm)
12 shallots, quartered
4cm/1½ in piece root ginger, finely chopped
140g whole blanched almonds
140g shelled pistachios
75g pack dried cranberries
6 tbsp clear honey
225g pack fresh spinach
400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp ground cumin
3 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
8 large sheets of filo pastry
lemon wedges to serve
For the harissa yogurt sauce
200g carton Greek yogurt
6 tbsp milk
3 large sprigs mint, leaves chopped
2-3 tbsp harissa paste
Preheat the oven to fan 180C/ conventional 200C/gas 6. Dry fry the seeds briefly in a small pan over a medium heat until toasty – don’t let them burn. Grind coarsely using a pestle and mortar (or a bowl and the end of a rolling pin), then mix in the paprika, cinnamon, 1⁄2 tsp salt and 4 tbsp oil. Tip the squash into a roasting tin, pour over the spiced oil and toss. Roast for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp of oil in a frying pan, add the shallots and cook, stirring, until they start to brown. Stir in the ginger and 100g/4oz each almonds and pistachios.When brown, toss in the cranberries, 2 tbsp honey, and the spinach so it wilts. Take off the heat and stir into the squash, when it comes out of the oven. Set aside.
In a food processor, whizz the chickpeas with the garlic, cumin, remaining oil, lemon juice, 2 tbsp water and salt and pepper to make houmous. Stir in the coriander.
Melt the butter in a small pan. Put a loose-bottomed 28cm quiche tin on a baking sheet and brush with some butter. Keeping the filo covered with a damp cloth so it doesn’t dry out, lay one sheet over half of the tin so that it hangs over the edge by about 10cm. Lay another sheet on the other side, so it overlaps the first in the centre and hangs over the opposite edge. Brush with butter. Lay two more filo sheets in the opposite direction in the same way and brush with more butter.
Build up two more layers in this way, so you use a total of eight sheets of filo. Pile half the squash mixture in the centre of the pastry. Spread over the houmous and then the rest of the squash mixture.One at a time, bring the edge of each filo sheet up to the centre to cover the filling, creating voluptuous folds as you go. Brush carefully with more butter. (If making a day ahead, cover now with cling film and chill. To reheat, remove the pie from the fridge, heat the oven, then bake for 35-40 minutes.)
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until crisp and golden. Just before the pie is ready, reheat any remaining butter in the pan, tip in the rest of the nuts and fry until golden. Spoon in the 4 remaining tbsps of honey and, when it melts, take off the heat and pour over the pie. Serve with Harissa yogurt sauce (mix the yogurt and milk together to make a thin sauce, stir in the herbs and season. Swirl in harissa to taste) and lemon wedges.

3 Tbsp All Purpose Flour use gluten-free for gluten-free version – plus more for rolling**
2 Tbsp Avocado Oil or other oil
Finely chop the onion and crush the garlic and add to a frying pan with 1 tsp avocado oil and fry until just before they start to brown.
Drain the can of chickpeas and add the chickpeas to a food processor with the cooked onions/garlic, paprika, coriander powder, cumin, freshly chopped cilantro and flour and process it into a thick burger batter.
Sprinkle flour over a baking tray and cover your hands with it as well. Scoop the batter out onto the tray in 4 even sections, roll in the flour and form into 4 balls.
If the batter is very sticky or too wet, add more flour so that it easily forms a ball.
Take a square of parchment paper, place on top of each ball and press down on it with the bottom of a glass to flatten it into a burger shape.
Place the baking tray with the 4 burgers into the freezer to firm up for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes add 2 Tbsp avocado oil to a frying pan and heat up until hot.
Add all 4 burgers to the frying pan and fry on each side turning regularly until browned and crispy, roughly 5 minutes on each side.
If you want your burgers extra firm and crispy you can place on a parchment lined baking tray and bake in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for a further 20-30 minutes.
Serve on hamburger buns with sliced avocado, crispy lettuce, sliced tomato, ketchup and mustard.

1 small lemon, juiced (1 small lemon yields ~2 Tbsp or 30 ml)
1-2 Tbsp hot water (to thin)
1 head romaine lettuce (or sub 1 bundle kale per 1 head romaine // cleaned, large stems removed, roughly chopped)
1 15-ounce can chickpeas (rinsed, drained and dried on a towel // ~ 1 1/4 cups per can when drained)
1 Tbsp coconut oil (or sub grape seed or olive oil)
4 Tbsp hot sauce (divided // I used Louisiana’s Pure Crystal Hot Sauce)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (or sub 1 minced garlic clove per 1/4 tsp powder)
1 pinch sea salt
3-4 vegan-friendly flour tortillas, pita, or flatbread
1/4 cup red onion, diced (optional)
1/4 cup baby tomato, diced (optional)
1/4 ripe avocado, thinly sliced (optional)
Make dressing by adding hummus, maple syrup, and lemon juice to a mixing bowl and whisking to combine. Add hot water until thick but pourable.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, then add romaine lettuce or kale, and toss. Set aside.
To make chickpeas, add drained, towel-dried chickpeas to a separate mixing bowl. Add coconut oil, 3 Tbsp hot sauce (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size), garlic powder, and a pinch of salt – toss to combine/coat.
Heat a metal or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add chickpeas and sauté for 3-5 minutes, mashing a few chickpeas gently with a spoon to create texture (see photo).
Once chickpeas are hot and slightly dried out, remove from heat and add remaining 1 Tbsp hot sauce (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size). Stir to combine. Set aside.
To assemble, top each wrap with a generous portion of the dressed romaine salad, and top with 1/4 cup buffalo chickpeas and a sprinkle of diced tomatoes, avocado, and/or onion (optional).
Serve immediately. Store leftovers separately in the refrigerator up to 3 days, though best when fresh. You can enjoy the buffalo chickpeas cold, room temperature or heated up.

½ bunch spring onions (about 5), tops and whites sliced but kept separate
1 tsp cumin, plus a little extra to serve (optional)
1 tsp coriander
½ tsp turmeric
3 tomatoes, cut into wedges
⅓ pack coriander, chopped
400g can chickpeas in water, drained but liquid reserved
½ tsp reduced-salt bouillon powder (we used Marigold)
4 large eggs
Heat the oil in a non-stick sauté pan, add the garlic, pepper, chilli and the whites from the spring onions, and fry for 5 mins over a medium-high heat. Meanwhile, put a large pan of water on to boil.
Add the spices, tomatoes, most of the coriander and the chickpeas to the sauté pan and cook for 1-2 mins more. Stir in the bouillon powder and enough liquid from the chickpeas to moisten everything, and leave to simmer gently.
Once the water is at a rolling boil, crack in your eggs and poach for 2 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon. Stir the spring onion tops into the chickpeas, then very lightly crush a few of the chickpeas with a fork or potato masher. Spoon the chickpea mixture onto plates, scatter with the reserved coriander and top with the eggs. Serve with an extra sprinkle of cumin, if you like.
