Falafels are a Middle Eastern snack traditionally made from either lava beans or chickpeas. They can be eaten on their own as finger food or as part of a meal. Falafels are often eaten inside flatbreads such as pita, but I also think that they go great with curry or at a barbecue.

Falafels are full of protein and fibre, which makes them a good vegetarian and vegan option. They are often deep fried, but that pretty much ruins the health benefits; here I have shallow fried them and used coconut oil so that they remain just as tasty, but also good for you.

Preparation Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients
1 x 410g tinned chickpeas (drained 240g)
2 tsp cumin seeds

1tbsp mixed herbs
