1 large egg
6 salad onions, thinly sliced
200g feta cheese, crumbled
1 lemon, zest & juice
1 tbsp olive oil

20g mint, leaves picked
1. Place the garlic, coriander, parsley, spices, chickpeas, egg and half of the salad onions into a food processor and pulse until you have a finely chopped mix.
2. Scoop the mix into a large bowl and add the rest of the salad onions, feta cheese, lemon zest and season.
3. Shape the mix into 12 patties using cupped hands. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the falafel in batches until golden.
