After a holiday or break away it's always hard to get back on track despite how good you may have been while away. If the cupboards are bare or you need an easy recipe to get you eating well again then these no flour falafel could be just the thing. 

I had no idea how easy falafel were to make and this recipe doesn't really need any measures as its all about store cupboard ingredients. 


  • 1 tin of chickpeas (cooked in the tin water, I empty it into a microwaveable bowl and heat on high for 3 minutes)
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp ras al hanout
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • handful fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 tsp coconut oil to cook


Place the cooked chickpeas into a bowl with all the other ingredients. 

Blend with a hand blender until it becomes a soft sand consistency. 

Form into pattie shapes and saute in the coconut oil until lightly browned on both sides. Take care when turning as they are quite fragile. 

Serve! I had mine with raw grated courgette and homemade greek yoghurt taziki dip. Easy.
