Fabulous falafel burgers

Fabulous falafel burgers


1 person made this

About this recipe: I like to do a couple of meals a week that are vegetarian, and I love these burgers. They are very tasty and quite simple to make. I don't like falafel that you can buy in shops so always make my own. Serve these with toasted pitta breads, tomato salsa and salad.

  1. Pat the chickpeas dry with kitchen paper. Tip them into a food processor, along with the onion, garlic, parsley, flour, spices and a little salt and pepper, blend until fairly smooth.
  2. Shape the mixture into little burger shapes (if you rub a little oil into your hands it will prevent the mixture sticking to them).
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add in the burgers and fry on a medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side until they are slightly golden. Serve with pittas, salsa and a salad.


You could use chilli powder instead of harissa.
