One of my missions in life is to find vegetarian dishes that my husband will eat, without asking where the meat in the meal is.
For whatever reason, it occurred to me on Saturday that I’d never made felafel before. As I have a bunch of chickpeas in the freezer – I soak/boil beans and chickpeas etc in bulk then freeze – why not?
Approx 600g of frozen chickpeas
1 bunch frozen parsley (or dried equiv)
~4 tbsp coriander
1c chopped onion
~3tbsp ground cumin
Slosh sweet chilli sauce
1/2tsp celery seeds
One or two eggs
Whizz chickpeas and onion through blender. Add spices. Mix until approximately meatballs consistency, adding egg / breadcrumbs / flour as required.
Leave in fridge for an hour to soak.
Add more flour now if required.
Shallow fry in 1/8 cup balls, in a mix of something+sesame oil.
They were utterly utterly delicious, served in tortillas with salsa, spinach, carrot, capsicum, and sour cream.
