Crisp on the outside, soft in the middle and incredibly easy to make! With only 5 simple ingredients, this falafel recipe is the only one you'll ever need! Vegan, GF & healthy.
Add the chickpeas into a food processor along with the garlic, parsley, cumin, 1 tsp sea salt and a generous few pinches of black pepper. Whizz into a chunky paste. To help it along here, you may need to stop once or twice to scrape down the sides of the processor.
Place the chickpea paste into a bowl and mix in the gram flour. Use your hands to roll the mixture into 10 small balls. Place the ball onto a plate and freeze for 1 hour until firm.
Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot, place the falafel into the pan and fry, turning regularly, until the whole surface is crispy and golden (around 10 minutes). Serve immediately.
