Ingredients:

  • 420g Woolworths Select Chick Peas
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp each ground coriander and cumin
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbs wholemeal plain flour
  • oil spray
  • 1/2 cup natural yoghurt
  • 1 tbs chopped mint
  • salad leaves, tomato, cucumber and sprouts, to serve
  • Method:

  • Drain and rinse chick peas and dry well. Place into a food processor with onion, garlic, parsley, spices and baking powder. Process until a paste forms. Transfer to a bowl and add enough of the flour until mixture holds together. It is best to mix the flour in using your hands.
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Shape tbspfuls of mixture into small patties and arrange on tray. Spray well with oil spray and bake for 20-25 mins until golden and dry.
  • Combine yoghurt and mint in a small bowl. Arrange salad on serving plates with falafels and spoon over some of the dressing.
  • Tip:

    We Recommend: Woolworths Select Chick Peas: Try our premium quality, slightly crunchy peas packed with a nutty flavour. For a homemade hummus, puree the Chick Peas in a processor adding 2 garlic cloves, 1 tbs tahini, 3 tbs lemon juice, 2 tsp olive oil and pepper, to taste. Serve with toasted Lebanese bread for dipping.
