Feta & Herb Falafel

Feta & Herb Falafel
This is definitely the BEST Falafel that I have ever tasted!  Delicious...
Serves 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 mins
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
20g coriander, roughly chopped (including stalks)
20g flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped (including stalks)
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
2 x 400g tins of chickpeas, drained & patted dry
1 large egg
6 salad onions, thinly sliced
200g feta cheese, crumbled
1 lemon, zest & juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, finely sliced
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.

4.  Toss the red onion, mint and lemon juice in a bowl.  Serve the falafels with the salad and some warmed pitta, rice or plain yogurt.
