Combine everything from the chickpeas to the breadcrumbs in a bowl and season well. Place half the mixture in a food processor and pulse until you have a smooth-ish purée. Add the rest of the mixture and pulse a little more. The texture should be rough and fairly lumpy, with a few chickpeas still whole.
Flour your hands well. Divide the mixture into Ping-Pong-sized balls, coat lightly in flour and press down slightly to flatten the top and bottom. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up, or cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge overnight. These mini burgers will also freeze for up to 1 month.
When you’re ready to cook, heat a frying pan and add a drizzle of oil. Fry the mini burgers for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, turning once, until they’re dark golden and crisp on the outside. Serve immediately with halloumi, flatbreads and salad.
