Makes 2 large burgers

Storage: Wrap tightly with cling film and refrigerate for 2 – 3 days  *Can be frozen – once you have formed your patties, place on a lined baking sheet and freeze.  Once frozen, wrap in cling film and return to the freezer.  To cook, allow to defrost in the fridge and return to baking instructions below.


  • Parsley, approx. 10g
  • Coriander, approx. 10g
  • 6 – 8 mint leaves (4g)
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/2 lemon (20g)
  • 1 tsp harissa paste (6g)
  • 40g almonds, toasted
  • 40g red onion, diced
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 can chickpeas (approx. 240g), drained and washed
  • 1 tbsp gram flour (chick pea four, can be exchanged for whole meal flour
  • Salt and pepper

To serve

  • Handful of rocket
  • Poached egg
  • Grated beetroot
  • Tahini dressing


Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4.

Place the parsley, coriander, mint and garlic clove in a food processor and blend to form a smooth herb paste.  Add the zest of half a lemon along with a squeeze of juice before adding the harissa, almond and red onion to the blender.  Blend until all the ingredients have combined.

In a dry pan, gently fry the cumin and coriander powder over a medium heat until they become aromatic.  Tip the spices into the food processor along with the chickpeas, a sprinkling of gram flour and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.  Blend the ingredients once again until the mixture represents a soft dough consistency and is starting to come away from the edge of the bowl.

Divide the mixture in two and on a lightly floured surface, mould into large patties.  Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15 – 20 minutes, until golden.  Flip the falafel over halfway through cooking to ensure the patties cook evenly.

To serve, place the falafel on a handful of rocket leaves and top with a soft-poached egg.

Garnish with a little raw grated beetroot and a drizzle of tahini dressing. Not included in nutritional information below

Ideal alongside sweet potato wedges and a lemon and mint courgette salad. Not included in nutritional information below.
