How do I make these Falafel Burgers?

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Rinse and drain a 400g tin of chickpeas and pat dry.

Step 2

Pour the chickpeas into a food processor. Chop the onion and garlic into large chunks and add to the food processor, along with the chilli powder, ground cumin, salt, coriander and flour.

Step 3

Blitz until the mixture starts to come together into a ball. Roll into 8 even balls and flatten to make burger shapes – these should be around 1cm thick.

Step 4

Spray a baking tray with Low calorie cooking spray and place the burgers onto the tray. Spray the tops of the burgers and cook in the oven for 25 minutes. Turn after this time, spray again with Low calorie cooking spray and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Step 5

Remove from the oven and eat while hot! You can also eat these cold with a dip!

  1. Tried this recipe was lovely, the only thing I changed was that I used fresh chick peas. Makes the world of difference. Delicious recipe and very filling.

  2. Made these a few times now. Need to adjust chilli powder and salt measurements to maybe half a teaspoon. Too hot and salty. But I do love falafel 😊

  3. I’m not sure what I’ve done wrong. Followed recipe exactly but mixture was far too goopy. Had to add LOADS of flour to be able to handle. What have I done wrong?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Louise,

      Perhaps you didn’t drain and rinse the chickpeas fully? This would add additional liquid to the mixture and make it less easy to handle.

      Hope that helps!
