Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food and are served in pita or flatbread.

For this version, we have served the falafel in a salad, but it is equally delicious in a pita if you prefer!

What you’ll need: 

  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 red chilli
  • Handful of coriander
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • Hummus (optional)

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients into a food processor or use a hand blender to mix but don’t overdo it.
  2. Heat up a frying pan with 1-2 tbsp of oil and shape the mixture into small balls or even burger shape if you like.
  3. Fry either side until golden brown and heated through.
  4. Serve on a bed of salad with some olives and hummus.
