Funky Falafel Burgers

Pneuma Pilates
Chickpeas are a great plant based protein as well as being high in fibre and complex carboydrates. These funky falafel burgers are filling, delicious and great fun to share with the family! We like to serve up bowls of lettuce, tomato, pickled cabbage, portobello mushrooms and blue cheese with these and leave little and big hands to pimp, mix and match there burgers!
