Fantastic Falafel – Recipe

I love Falafel and until recently didn’t realise how easy it was to make. I love Middle Eastern flavours and will usually choose a Falafel dish over a meat dish at a restaurant.

Here is a recipe for great tasting Falafel. It makes 3 normal size burgers or 4 smaller ones.

It took me around 15 minutes from start to finish


400g tin of chickpeas (about 230g drained and rinsed)

2 cloves garlic

Handful of fresh coriander

Handful of fresh parsley

2 tbsp flour

1 tbsp chilli powder (I go for mild)

1 red onion. Chopped

1 tbsp ground cumin


Drain and rinse the chickpeas then dry with a paper towel.

Place all ingredients into a food processor. Wizz until smooth and form in to burger shape.

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry for 3 minutes on each side.

Place on a lightly grilled flatbread (I love these from Sainsbury’s) or in a pitta with some lettuce and my homemade hummus and enjoy!
