A simple recipe for baked falafel. These budget-friendly lunchtime falafel are delicious in a salad, in a wholegrain pitta or with rice. Ideally they'd be served alongside some humous and/or tzatziki.

 40 g chopped onion
 2 cloves garlic
 15 g fresh parsley
 400 g tin of chickpeas (240g drained weight)
 1 tsp ground cumin
 1 tsp ground coriander
 1 pinch of cayenne pepper
 ¾ tsp salt
 ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
 2 tsp lemon juice
 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 3 tbsp plain or oat flour


Combine the onion, garlic and parsley in a food processor until finely chopped (or finely chop if you do not have a food processor) [Tmx: Speed 6]


Add the other ingredients (except the flour) and process (or mash with a potato masher if you do not have a food processor) [Tmx: Speed 4]


Stir in flour until well combined. [Tmx: Reverse Speed 2]


Mould into 8 patties with your hands and place on a lined baking sheet.


Bake in a preheated oven 180 degrees centigrade (fan-assisted) for 20 minutes.
