Ingredients

  • 2 x 400g tins chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ small bunch fresh flatleaf parsley
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 red onion, very finely chopped
  • 2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp wholemeal flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for frying
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • Herby quinoa to serve

Method

  1. Put the chickpeas, half the garlic, the parsley, cumin and coriander in a food processor and whizz to a paste. Transfer to a bowl, add the onion, eggs and flour, then season with salt and pepper and mix well to form a stiff mixture.
  2. Heat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6 and line a baking sheet with baking paper. Shape the falafel mixture into small patties. In batches, shallow-fry the falafels in a little olive oil for 2-3 minutes on each side until starting to turn crispy. Transfer to the baking sheet, then bake for 10-12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the dressing by whisking together the 2 tbsp olive oil, tahini, remaining garlic and lemon juice. Serve the falafels with the tahini dressing and some cooked herby quinoa on the side.
