I love falafel’s and humus, so thought I would try this…
You need a falafel mix, I used an instant falafel mix but just as easy to make your own. See the full recipe below…
You will need:
- 1 cup dried chickpeas (soaked overnight) or 16 oz. can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans.
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 3 tbsp of fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 fresh chilli chopped finely if you like a bit of heat
- 2 tbsp flour (I use Kamut)
- Salt & Pepper
- Oil for frying or simply bake in oven
- muffin tin
- mini muffin cases
- humus for the topping
Start by placing the chickpeas in a pan with fresh water, and bring to a boil. (if you are using canned beans omit this step) allow to boil for 5 minutes, then let simmer on low for about an hour. Drain and allow to cool. Mix together the chickpeas, the garlic, onion, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper (to taste) in medium bowl and add the flour to bind. Mash the ingredients together or combine using a food processor, the end result should be a thick paste. Form the mixture into small balls, about the size of a ping-pong ball, flatten them slightly and then either pop into muffin cases and bake or shallow fry until golden brown.
Mix your falafel’s & dollop into a muffin case, bake at 200 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Remove from the cases and ‘ice’ with humus, sprinkle with seasoning.
