How do I make these Low Syn 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 Frylight 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 Frylight 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 😊

    1. Hi Andrea
      It’s great that you were able to adapt the recipe to suit your personal tastes. Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

    1. Hi Char
      A rough guide is 1 Syn for every 20 calories, but this only works for food that does not have a free food allowance. Also, if it’s not on the app you can work it out using the Syn calculator or the Snackulator on the SW website.

      We don’t allow syn requests in this group, but if you don’t have access to the SW website then there are a number of FB groups dedicated to providing Syn values.

      You can ask for Syn values in the How Many Syns Facebook group. Or you can look at syn values in the Syns Allowed Facebook Group.
