We're big fans of these middle-eastern inspired baked falafels, especially with a big dollop of hummus! Not only are they incredibly tasty, but they're also healthy, plantbased and super easy to prep on a Sunday night ready for mid-week meals and snacks. Not to mention they're very budget friendly too - what's not to like?
In a food processor blitz all the ingredients until it forms a smooth paste.
With wet hands, make small balls, about the size of a golf ball. Chill the falafel in the fridge for 30 minutes - 1 hour.
In a frying pan, heat 2 tbsp oil on a medium heat. Cook the falafel for around 10 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.
We served ours with a wholemeal wrap, tomato relish and a chopped salad.
