For the burgers, fry the shallot and garlic. Add the chickpeas, sweet pepper puree, cumin and stock. Season with lemon juice, grated lemon peel, salt, pepper and coriander. Puree the mixture briefly. Allow the mixture to cool and shape the burgers. Allow to chill thorough and roll them in the flour, egg and crushed cornflakes.
