These falafels are lighter than the normal chickpea version. I have added a couple of egg whites to the mix so that they aren't so heavy and I have used kidney beans instead of the usual chickpeas. —Small Acorns
tin of kidney beans
Coconut Oil for Frying
In This Recipe
Pre-heat the oven to 180c and lightly grease a baking try with coconut oil or olive oil.
In a food processor blend the beans, tahini and spices until you get a smooth paste. Transfer into a large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, stir until well combined. Then chill in the fridge for around 30mins.
Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan and then start to fry the falafels (I made small little patties with about a tablespoon of the mixture). heat the falafels for 5mins on each side and then transfer to a baking sheet. Continue until all of the mixture has been used up and bake the falafels in the oven for around 20mins.
Serve immediately with a salad or as a snack or simply leave to cool and refrigerate or freeze for later.
