Fabulous Falafels (super easy)

These were ridiculously easy. I definitely didn't eat the entire thing whilst drinking g&ts. 

Previous versions I've made have been very wet - these were great! I don't think they'd fry well though. Baking helps them hold together.


1 small onion, diced

garlic clove, smashed/diced

1 x 400g/14oz can chickpeas

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp mixed herbs

1 tbsp lemon juice (from a bottle)

1 tsp dried chilli flakes (optional)



Fry the onion and garlic off in a bit of water to soften, then add the spices and fry for another minute or two. 

Drain the chickpeas and add to the pan. Keep it on the heat and stir it round a bit to get rid of any excess moisture. 

Take the pan off the heat and mash the mixture until it's as smooth as you like (add some salt at this point if you like). 

Add the egg and the lemon juice and give it another good mash/stir. 

Dollop a dessertspoon of the mixture onto a baking sheet and bake for about 15-20min in a 200°C oven. 

I made 14 and ate the whole lot myself!
