Spicy Sweet Potato Burger with Curried Chickpeas

Lightly spiced veggie burger with Aldi UKs curried chickpeas

This was a 'we've been away for the weekend and I haven't been shopping yet' lunch. I would happing have it again though, very filling and tasty.

The burger has the right amount of spice and warmth with a lovely crisp outer and a soft inner. Then the tomato and greek yogurt add the freshness and creaminess.

The Aldi UK curried chickpeas were surprisingly tasty. You could pair them up with a lovely spiced chicken breast or a lovely spiced piece of lamb. Any protein really, or simply on their as they are tasty enough!
