These are a super healthy and yummy dinner idea and so fast and easy to make!!
I double the recipe to feed our family of five and it is plenty enough for us. We just serve ours in wraps or pita bread with lettuce, tomato, finely grated carrot, garlic sauce and hummus dip. It is delicious, healthy, fast and easy!! Definitely a go to recipe for busy people!
(Makes 15 falafel balls: we doubled this recipe and made 30 falafel balls)
1/2 onion peeled and quartered
2 cloves garlic
400g can of chick peas, drained
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
Place onion, garlic, chick peas, parsley, breadcrumbs, flour and cumin into your blender/food processor/thermomix.
Process using the pulse function 5 times on your food processor/blender/thermomix.
Add salt and pepper and blend for 30 seconds on medium speed for blender/food processor or Speed 4 on your thermomix.
Shape mixture into golf ball size pieces, slightly flattened.
Transfer onto a baking tray lined with paper. Brush both sides with oil and bake for 40 – 45 minutes, turning half way through.
PLEASE NOTE: To avoid dry falafel balls, brush them with oil when turning them half way through cooking.
These were so yummy, easy, cheap and fast to make and our whole family loved them!! I highly recommend them and hope you love them too!
Much love, Fern
