Rethink falafel - while the traditional wrap is great, this is a tasty vegetarian alternative to beefburgers. Serve in a burger bap or pitta.

This is a great Middle Eastern dish, simple to make and a real hit every time I make it (and amazingly cheap too!), is also good cold the next day for a lunch box.

This is a tasty vegan falafel that contains no eggs. Serve on pitta with tzatziki or tahini sauce with lettuce and tomato.

Although falafel can be made with just chickpeas, they taste really authentic with beans. They have to be soaked for 48 hours, however, so this recipe is not for those in a hurry. For this effort, the falafel taste absolutely fantastic and this recipe makes a whole load of them.

As a change from rice, pasta or couscous, try little falafel with a simple vegetable casserole. Made with canned chickpeas and baked rather than deep-fried, these falafel are quick and easy to prepare.

Falafel is usually deep fried, but these are shallow fried in olive oil for an easier and healthier alternative.
