Confession…….had been buying ready made falafels from the supermarket. Lovely vegan ones but decided to have a go at making some. 1 because I wanted to try a new vegan recipe and 2 because I bought tahini from Village Greens a while ago and didn’t really know what to do with it.
Using this recipe from Deliciously Ella and made half the quantity which made about 7 falafels (plus the mixture I ate because it tasted gorgeous!!)
I followed the recipe pretty much as written but used lemon juice from a bottle, agave syrup and wholemeal plain flour (because we didn’t have chickpea or rice flour)
For the apple puree I just zapped some apples with cinnamon and water in the microwave. Job done.
After processing the first lot of ingredients the mixture looked quite wet but it soon came together once the chickpeas and pine nuts were added.
Also got to use the groovy gadget for making the balls.
Verdict: Gorgeous will definitely be making them again.
