30 mins mins

2-4 people people



1/2 white onion
1/2 large beetroot (or 1 small beetroot), cooked
4 garlic cloves, crushed
15g coriander, chopped
5-6 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried chilli flakes
1 tsp. cumin
8 Tbsp. chickpea flour
Garlic Tahini Dressing:120g tahini
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp. maple syrup
3-4 Tbsp. water


1. Preheat the oven to 180C.

2. Place the chickpeas, onion, cooked beetroot and garlic into a food processor. Blend until texture is grainy, then add the coriander, 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds, salt, pepper, dried chilli flakes, cumin and olive oil. Process until combined.

3. Slowly add the chickpea flour to the mixture whilst processing. If the mixture is still very wet then keep adding chickpea flour until its firm enough roll into a ball.

4. Take a small handful of the mixture and roll into roughly 5 x 5 cm balls and roll them in the remaining sesame seeds. Place the falafel balls onto a lined baking tray.

5. Bake the falafels in the oven for 20 minutes.

6. In a small bowl, whisk the tahini, lemon juice, garlic clove, maple syrup, and water together until combined.

7. Serve the garlic tahini dressing alongside your freshly baked falafels and enjoy!
