My take on a traditional Middle Eastern favourite. Slightly spicy and packed with rich flavours, this falafel is low in fat and high in nutrition.

Traditional Falafel

Rate this recipe


  • 1 tin organic chickpeas, drained
  • 1 tin organic mixed pulses, drained
  • 2g chopped coriander
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp harissa paste
  • 1 tsp raz el hanout spice
  • 1 tbsp plain flour (heaped)
  • 1 dash pepper
  • 1 dash salt
  • Drizzle rapeseed oil
Prep Time


  1. Place the ingredients in the order listed above into your blender and pulse until the mixture combines.

  2. Form into evenly shaped patties, and allow to chill – this will firm them up and help when cooking.

  3. Once chilled pre-heat a non-stick frying pan, and fry until golden on each side.

  4. Once all the patties are fried, transfer them onto a baking tray, and bake in the oven for 10 minutes at 180C.

  5. You can then serve your delicious falafel with wraps, salad and hummus for a genuine Middle Eastern banquet.

As a former chef, food has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. But it was my love of creating my own dishes and then sharing them with the world that got me to where I am today. I have a passion for creating vegan food that looks every bit as good as it tastes. Perhaps the only thing to rival my passion for cooking is my love of photography. And I'm so fortunate, as I get to combine my great passions in life every day.
