Chickpeas falafel recipe

rsz_psx_20161115_202104Chickpeas falafel recipe

Falafel is a Arab food. They are fried vegetarian chickpeas or fava beans fritters and they are often served with hummus (a sort of sauce) or other veggie sauces.

Cooking falafels in the traditional way is indeed a vegan food. They are traditionally fried, but you can alternatively bake them. They result healthier and lighter, as well.

Ingredients for 10 falafels:

250 g of dry chickpeas;

2 garlic cloves;

1 tea-spoon of cumin seeds;

1 tea-spoon of fresh minced coriander;

1 tea-spoon of fresh chopped parsley;

1 tea-spoon of baking soda;

2 thinly sliced onions;

Some salt;

Some pepper;

Some extra virgin olive oil.

How to prepare them…

You will need to soak dried chickpeas overnight for your falafel. (almost 12 hours)

The day after, wash and dry them accurately.

Put dried chickpeas in a liquidizer, add garlic cloves, some baking soda, some cumin seeds, and two tea-spoons of extra virgin olive oil.

Finely, chop the mixture up. Once the mixture reaches the desired consistency, pour it out into a bowl and use a fork to stir. over the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate fot 30 minutes. Add then some coriander, parsley and onion.

Preheat the oven at 200°C.

Meanwhile, form falafel mixture into round balls. You can make them smaller or larger depending on your personal tastes. Try to make 10 small round balls, at least.

Put them on a non-stick baking tray for 25 minutes. Once the falafels are golden, leave them cooking.

Serve the falafels fresh and hot; they go best with a plate of hummus and lots of vegetables

  2. In the meantime, add some olive oil, mix until well processed.
  3. Shape the mixture in 8 middle-sized veggie burgers.
  4. To cook, heat a large iron gridiron over medium/ medium-high heat (or cook on the grill!). Cook them 3-4 minutes for each side.

  6. Alternatively, serve over salads, vegetables, or enjoy as is!
