Chicken burgers with hummus and a fennel, celery and orange slaw

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 45 mins

Ingredients

  • 240g tinned butter beans, drained
  • 2,5ml (½ tsp) crushed garlic
  • 5ml (1 tsp) lemon juice
  • 1,25ml (¼ tsp) ground cumin
  • 1,25ml (¼ tsp) ground coriander
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) olive or avocado oil
  • 5ml (1 tsp) fresh coriander, chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 celery stalk
  • ice water
  • 1 fennel bulb (white part only), sliced paper-thin with a mandoline
  • 170ml ( cup) grated carrot
  • juice of 2 oranges
  • 1 orange, peeled, segmented and chopped
  • 4 deboned and skinless chicken breasts
  • oil, for frying
  • 4 burger rolls
  • salad leaves, to serve
  • chips or salad, to serve

Instructions

1

For the hummus, place the butter beans, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and ground coriander in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add the oil and blend to combine. Stir in the fresh coriander and season.

2

Use a vegetable peeler to slice ribbons off the celery stalk. Place the ribbons in ice water for 10 minutes. This causes them to curl up and form celery curls.

3

Combine the celery curls, fennel, carrot, orange juice and chopped orange, and season with a little black pepper. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes.

4

Heat a griddle pan until hot. Brush the chicken breasts with oil and season lightly. Fry until cooked, 8 – 10 minutes.

5

Make the burgers by slicing the rolls in half and spreading with hummus. Add salad leaves, chicken breast and slaw.

6

Serve with chips or salad on the side.

Notes

Toast the buns in a dry pan on the sliced sides. This adds a layer of texture and flavour, and makes the burger less soggy from the filling.
