Cut up pumpkin into small sized pieces and add a little olive oil, salt and pepper Place onto a baking tray with the clove of garlic and cook for 30 minutes in the oven till a little golden brown.
Drain the chick peas and coarsely mash either in your food processor or by hand.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl pop in your cooked brown rice, spices, chopped coriander and lemon zest.
Add the pumpkin when cooked and the clove of garlic.
Mix together to form a nice mushy consistency.
Place the sesame seeds into a bowl. Make patties out of the mixture the size of a golf ball and roll or sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
Pop the patties onto a baking tray covered with baking paper and drizzle with tiny bit of olive oil.
Cook for 20*25 minutes or until you think they look lovely and golden.
Serve with sour cream, Greek yoghurt, tzatziki or what ever you like.
While this is a Vegan recipe feel free to add an egg if you like to bind the mix together. The Roasted Pumpkin, Chickpea and Rice Patties can be a slightly drier Pattie after baking. Adding the egg will help bind the mix.
