Moroccan Falafel by The Greedy Fox
This is a foolproof Falafel recipe, the beauty of Falafel is the versatility of it and the cost of chickpeas makes this a real budget recipe. If you are Vegan or Vegetarian this will become one of your ‘go-to’ recipes. As an added bonus these are baked falafel so they are low fat too. Falafel ingredients are very simple, its essentially just chickpeas, flour and seasoning. Thats why The Greedy Fox Seasonings lend themselves perfectly to Falafel…just pick a seasoning that takes your fancy and off you go.
If you want to you can make these into falafel burgers, just change size of the patties.
1x400g Tin of Chickpeas, drained and dried.
1/2tsp Garlic [we use lazy]
1/2Tsp Ginger [we use lazy]
Small handful Coriander [stalks an all]
1/2 small onion
Red Chilli as much as you like. we used 1/2 a deseeded chilli.
3Tbsp Gluten free plain flour. [normal flour will work]
Salt and pepper to taste.
Place all ingredients except the flour and salt and pepper into a blender and pulse until the mixture resembles a crumbly dough.
While pulsing the chickpea mix add the flour 1Tbsp at a time until you get a mouldable dough [You may not need all the flour]
Roll into small walnut size balls [you should make around 10] and squash into patties. Leave to set covered in the fridge for 30 mins. This stage isn’t essential but may make frying a little easier.
Remove from the fridge.
Heat the oil over a hight heat and fry for 3-4mins each side or until cooked through and golden.
Or spray with a little of your low fat cooking spray and bake at 200 deg for 15mins turning halfway.
Best served hot but can be eaten cold.
