Chickpea burgers

I really need to sort out my photography skills!  The trouble is, my food is not staged, it is, quite literally, my dinner - so I don't want to faff about while it gets cold!  It is also somewhat irritating for anyone else who is eating with me.  Still, must try harder!

This, believe it or not,  is a chickpea burger, aubergine and courgette bake with some new potato chips, and it was very, very tasty.

New potatoes
Red onion
Roasted red pepper (out of a jar is just as good as home roasting)
olive oil
Porridge oats
Mixed herbs

1.  Quarter or halve new potatoes (depends on the size), longways, so that they resemble chips. Toss in olive oil and put in a roasting tray in a medium hot oven for 30 minutes (approximately).
2.  Slice aubergines and courgettes, toss them, in a bag, in the polenta with mixed herbs and chili.
3.  Griddle the slices of aubergine and courgette, layer into an oven proof dish.  Top with sliced tomato and torn basil leaves.  Bake for as long as the potatoes are in.
3.  Drain the chickpeas, add finely sliced red onion and a couple of roughly chopped red peppers.  Mash.
4.  Whisk an egg, add to chickpeas with a handful of oats and some chopped oregano, mix to bind.  You could shape into burgers, and put in the fridge - but I just squished the mixture into a food ring, straight into the pan.  Fry in olive oil for 5 minutes on each side.
5.  Everything should be done together, so serve and scoff.
