Fabulous falafel

A few weeks ago I tried some falafel for the first time, and it was delicious! So, how do you make your own healthy and vegan falafel?


  • 250 g canned chickpeas, washed and leaked
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (for frying)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until it is a thick paste. Mould the mixture into small balls then flatten into patties. Fry on medium heat for 3 minutes on each side until the falafels are golden brown. Serve hot.

You can serve falafel with hummus and tahini. Falafel is also great to add in wraps of just as a delicious extra in a salad. I love it in a spinach salad with soms hummus, yum!
