Homemade Falafels

Updated: Nov 27, 2021


Make your own falafels without any preservatives or flavour enhancers. You can eat them with my fresh homemade hummus or in a tortilla wrap. They are a good source of plant-based protein and low in fat.


Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cooking Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 30 mins

Servings: 2-4 people

Portions: 8-10 falafels

 

Ingredients


1 tin chickpeas

2 tbsp flour

2 spring onions

2 garlic cloves

15 g flat parsley

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

salt

pepper

 

Method


1. Peel the chickpeas. Do not skip this step, it can take a little bit more time, but it makes a crucial difference to the consistency of the falafels.


2. Roughly chop the spring onions and garlic.

3. Put the chickpeas, flour, spring onions, garlic, herbs, and spices into a food processor. Blend until the mixture is uniform and does not have any bigger chunks anymore.


4. Finalize the falafels. Divide the “dough” into 8-10 equal pieces and shape small balls with your hands.


5. I suggest frying the falafels in a pan with some olive oil until they are golden brown. However, you could also deep-fry them or bake them fat-free in the oven for 20-30 minutes.


Enjoy!
