Lovely Falafel

The perfect vegetarian meal that can be added to salads, put together in a wrap or make smaller versions for starters!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups Flannerys Certified Organic Chickpeas, soaked overnight in cold filtered water and then drained
  • 1 TBS Flannerys Certified Organic Hulled Tahini
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 1/2 tsp ground chilli
  • 3 tsp cumin
  • a handful of fresh coriander and parsley – roughly 1/2 cup – 1 cup
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • Flannerys Certified Organic Coconut Oil for cooking

Method

  • In a food processor, add the chickpeas, garlic, lemons juice & dried spices – blend until well combined
  • Next add the fresh herbs, onion and then generously season with salt and pepper.
  • Process again
  • Spoon out small handfuls of the mixture (it helps to use wet hands!) and place on a tray.  Pop in the fridge until you’re ready to cook!
  • Heat enough coconut oil in a deep pan, then add the falafel balls in batches – turn occasionally and cook until golden brown all over (roughly 3 mins)
  • Drain on a rack or absorbent paper and serve any way you like!

A delicious cucumber yoghurt can be a great addition to this recipe.
Simply peel and remove the seeds of a long cucumber – grate into a bowl then add some natural Greek yoghurt and grate over some fresh garlic.  Mix well.
