  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup portobello mushrooms diced into 1-centimetre chunks
  • 1 cup kale roughly torn
  • 1 cup chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup spring onions
  • 1 clove garlic finely diced
  • 1 medium egg whisked
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder unsweetened
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons lupin flakes flakes
  • 2 tablespoons yeast flakes
  • ½ teaspoon tamarind sauce
  • ½ teaspoon tamarind paste
  • ½ teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch cloves ground
  • 1 pinch chilli powder ground


  • Add chickpeas to saucepan, soak with water, and heat over medium flame for 8 to 12 minutes or until chickpeas are soft. Drain and set aside. Once cool, add half of the chickpeas to the mixing bowl and mash with a masher (chunks are okay!).
  • Next, add the mushrooms, the rest of the chickpeas, kale, garlic, spring onions, spices, vinegar, tamarind sauce and paste. Mix until just coated.
  • Add the egg, nutritional yeast flakes and lupin flakes (or GF bread crumbs) and mix gently with a large spoon until well combined. Then, using dampened hands, form the mixture into palm-sized patties and press down to flatten; the mixture must hold its shape; if it doesn’t, add a bit extra lupin flakes/bread crumbs.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to frypan and heat over medium flame. Once hot, carefully add 2 to 3 patties to the pan and fry for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Don’t worry if the patty looks a little underdone; it will firm up once rested.
  • Enjoy sandwiched and sauced or on top of a summer salad!
