The #TryTotal Challenge

I was asked by the lovely people over at Total to join in with their #TryTotal Challenge and was sent a gorgeous hamper of goodies to get me started. I must admit that I love Total Greek yoghurt with fruit or even just on its own but I don’t tend to use it in cooking so I was really interested to give it a try.

I used a hand mixer to make my burgers but you could use a food processor if you prefer. First of all I whizzed my bread into breadrumbs then added all of the rest of the burger ingredients and whizzed until everything was well chopped but still quite coarse. I made the mixture into six patties (I was feeding my whole tribe and there was plenty for all six of us but these ingredients could make at least four jumbo burgers)

Place a little oil in a frying pan and heat to a medium heat then carefully add the patties. The mixture is quite soft and I must admit that I wasn’t sure if they would fall apart but they were absolutely fine. I cooked them for a good five minutes until they were nice and golden before turning and cooking the other side for probably about another five minutes until they were piping hot.

Meanwhile, mix the sliced red onion and yoghurt ready to serve with the cooked burger. I warmed the ciabatta rolls and assembled with the salad.

We all really enjoyed the burgers, even Mr Mostly who tends to turn all caveman on me if he doesn’t have any meat on his plate! But the burgers were so tasty and actually really filling too. We will definitely be having these chickpea burgers again and I am won over on using Total in my cooking from now on. Not only is it a healthier alternative to cream, mayo or creme fraiche but most important of all, there is no compromise in taste.
