Falafel burgers

from BBC Good Food

I always used to try to make the recipe up each time, but these are really nice & stick together!

Makes 4 patties, enough for 1 adult & 1 child.


  • 400g can chickpeas , rinsed and drained
  • garlic clove , chopped
  • handful of flat-leaf parsley or curly parsley
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1⁄2 tsp harissa paste or chilli powder (optional)
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 small red onion , roughly chopped
for the dip
  • 0.5 pot of Greek (or Soy) Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp dried mint

to serve

  • toasted pitta bread
  • avocado
  • tomato salsa
  • green salad


  1. To make the minty yogurt dip, mix half a pot of greek yogurt with 1 tbsp mint and leave to stand – ideally for at least 30mins
  2. Pat the chickpeas dry with kitchen paper. Tip into a food processor along with the onion, garlic, parsley, spices, and flour. Blend until fairly smooth, then shape into four patties with your hands.
  3. These are really nice cooked in the slow cooker (spray with oil, cook for 2-3hrs on high, turning once) but they can of course be fried in a pan (heat oil in a pan & fry for 3mins on each side)
  4. Serve with with minty yogurt dip, toasted pittas, avocado, tomato salsa and a green salad.!
