Place the chickpeas, grated marrow, chilli, garlic, egg, cheese and bread in a food processor and pulse until just mixed.

Add the flour and salt and black pepper and divide the mixture into four.

Shape each quarter into a burger patty and place these in the fridge for at least half an hour before frying.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the patties for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

To serve:

Cut open the pita bread and drizzle olive oil over the open halves.

Place shredded lettuce on one half, followed by aubergine strips, tomato slices and a burger patty.

Spoon hummus on top and finish off with the sweet pepper strips. Close the burger with the other half of the pita bread and serve.
