  • 1ยฝ can chickpeas rinsed very thoroughly
  • ยผ cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup (buckwheat) flour
  • Parsley
  • 1 tsp of each: Smoked paprika, turmeric, cumin, cayenne, salt, pepper
  • Super food grain salad:
  • 1 cup of cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup of quinoa
  • 1/4 cup of pepitas
  • Olive oil
  • To serve:
  • Fresh kale
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • Hummus
  • Pepitas
  • Coleslaw
  • Step 1 Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees Celcius.
  • Step 2 Start with adding all the ingredients for the falafel in a food processor and process until smooth. If the โ€œpasteโ€ is very moist, add more flour.
  • Step 3 Roll the falafels into little balls or patties and lightly fry them over medium high head in a large frying pan with some oil. Fry for about 2-3 min on each side.
  • Step 4 Transfer the falafels to an oven plate with baking paper and place in the oven for 20 min.
  • Step 5 In the meanwhile, make your super food grain salad. I used pre-cooked brown rice and quinoa. Mix this with pepitas and some olive oil.
  • Step 6 Now wash your kale and massage this with nutritional yeast and fresh lemon juice.
  • Step 7 When the falafels are ready, serve everything in a bowl or a plate and top with hummus and coleslaw.
