Vegan Chickpea and Mushroom Burgers

This is a bit of a strange recipe for me because I don't really like mushrooms. It's a bit odd, I do like the taste but I don't really like the texture of them so they aren't something I often buy or eat. However, a little while ago I had a chickpea and mushroom burger while eating out and it was so delicious that I was determined to try recreating it at home. I've tried making veggie burgers a few times before but they never seem to turn out just how I want them to, that was until I tried these ones - maybe mushrooms were the missing ingredient all this time?

Vegan Chickpea and Mushroom Burgers

You will need (makes 6 burgers): 
1 x 400g tin chickpeas
200g (around 2 cups) baby mushrooms 
1/3 cup sweetcorn
1 cup oats
1 tablespoon tomato puree
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon herbs de Provence
1/2 teaspoon garlic granules (or two minced cloves)
1/2 teaspoon dried chillies
a sprinkle of salt and pepper

Method: 
- Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
- Add the oats to a food processor and pulse into a flour.
- Add all the other ingredients into the food processor and pulse until broken down and combined, but not completely smooth - the burgers work best when the mixture still has some texture to it. You can add extra oat flour if you find the mixture is too wet. 
- Shape the mixture into six burgers and place onto a lined baking tray.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning half way.
