Remove the water from the chickpeas (drain under cold water). Put in a blender or mixer, add red pesto, paprika, harissa, lemon zest + juice and balsamic. Mix carefully together so you get a sticky patty texture.
Add the flour, oil, salt and pepper and mix together again. (you can use a spoon, you don't need the power from the blender for this last part)
Set a frying pan over medium heat with 2-3 tablespoon plant butter or oil, and shape the patties to the size you want. Warm about 2-3 minutes on each side and flip when they are perfectly crispy and firm. They don't need to be well done.
When the oven is warm, add the patties on a baking tray with baking paper, warm in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden and crispy. Put the buns in the oven too for the last couple of minutes. Cool it all down before making the burger.
Serve the hot patties in the buns, with a good ketchup, salad, tomatoes, mushrooms, radishes and a good burger dressing. And don't forget, the best homemade french fries.
