Today we made Falafel pie

Hi everyone,

So here’s another favourite recipe of mine. It’s super quick and easy to do with minimum ingredients. I love falafel but wanted to enjoy it without all they frying and the bread! So this recipe is a great way of enjoying the goodness of falafel without all the hassle. Just use a pre-mixed packet of falafel to make the base or use the recipe below. You can also use store bought hummus but I prefer to make my own. All the recipes are below but there are plenty of cheats too ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Ingredients for Falafel

1 and 1/2 cup chickpeas (one can rinsed and drained)

Handful of flat-leaf parsley

1 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp chilli powder (or add to taste)

2 tbsp plain flower

2 tbsp sunflower oil

Method

  1. Make sure the chickpeas are rinsed and dried
  2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until they’re thoroughly combined
  3. You should be left with a thick mixture
  4. Grease an oven dish with coconut oil and then pat the mixture into a flat layer in the dish
  5. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees C until a knife comes out clean (usually about 25 minutes)

 

Ingredients in Hummus

1 and 1/2 cup drained chickpeas (one can)

3 tsp tahini

1 tsp salt (more to taste)

6 tbsp olive oil

2 freshly squeezed lemons

Pinch of paprika

Method

  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas
  2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and mix until well combined
  3. Once the falafel is cooked, layer on the hummus
  4. Top with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers

You can top with as much or as little vegetables as possible. I usually put a really thick layer of hummus on too and my husband enjoys it as hummus with a side of falafel! That’s the great thing about this dish- it’s easy and can be amended to suit your taste! Have fun with it and go wild ๐Ÿ™‚

Love A x
