Method
Step 1
Pea Falafels:
Step 2
Place the Wattie’s frozen Baby Peas in a sieve and run hot water through them to defrost. Place in a food processor with the drained Wattie’s Chickpeas, red onion, garlic, parsley, Gregg’s Whole Cumin Seeds, chickpea flour and lemon zest. Process until mixture binds together but still has some texture. If the mixture is a bit too wet add a little extra chickpea flour. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 3
Shape the mixture into 12 - 15 small patties. Place on a tray and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Step 4
Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a small frying pan and cook the falafels over medium to low heat for 3-4 minutes each side or until golden and hot. Serve with the salad.
Step 5
Mediterranean Salad Bowl:
Step 6
Place spinach leaves, parsley, tomatoes, red onion and olives into a bowl. Top with falafels and a good dollop of Just Hummus with Beetroot & Roasted Garlic. Whisk together lemon juice and olive oil and drizzle over the salad.
Tips
Freeze cooked falafels on a tray. Once frozen pack into sealable bags or an airtight container. Heat from frozen in the microwave. Store for up to 1 month.
Switch It Up
Fill pita pockets with falafels and the Mediterranean salad.
