Chickpea Burger Recipe

My husband bought a Go-Pro camera, not too long ago, to video his surfing/snowboarding and any other extreme sport he may want to get into in the near future.

So the otherday, I decided to give it a go and video myself cooking dinner. I strapped it on my head, had a good laugh at myself in the mirror and pressed record.
