Feel Good Falafels

These falafels are full of healthy ingredients and are baked rather than fried, making them a much healthier option than a lot of recipes out there. They’re delicious, vegan, gluten free and easy to make. Not to mention they stay together.

Serves 4

45 mins Total

15 mins prep

30 mins cooking time


2 tins chickpeas, drained

1 red onion, roughly chopped

1 handful fresh parsley

3 garlic cloves

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp ground cumin

1 tbsp ground coriander

½ tsp cayenne pepper

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tbsp buckwheat flour

½ tsp Himalayan salt

– Lightly grease a baking tray with olive oil

-Put all ingredients in the food processor and blend until you have a chunky mixture. 

– Make patties from your mixture and add to the tray. You can make them any size you like but I tend to do a size similar to a small burger.

– Place your patties in the fridge for an hour or as long as you want. The patties will stay together better cold. 

– Preheat your oven to 200 C (400F).

– Place your tray in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes.

– Flip your patties and heat for a further 15 minutes. 

Serve with pittas, wraps, salad or cous cous. Great with lettuce, tomato and cucumber in a pitta. I love to add vegan yoghurt and hot sauce.
