  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • 1tsp ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a small frying pan. Add ¾ of the diced onion (reserving the other ¼ for the salsa) and fry for 3-4 minutes without colour.  Add the grated carrots and ¾ of the garlic, (again reserving the other ¼ with the saved onion for the salsa) and cook together for a further 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice, cumin, and ground coriander. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Blend the drained chickpeas so they are chopped finely, then add them to the onion mix with the chickpea flour, and 2 tbsp of fresh coriander. Mix together so it’s all combined, and then divide and shape into four equal patties. Refrigerate until needed.
  4. To make the salsa, add the chopped tomatoes into the onion and garlic reserved earlier. Add 1 tbsp fresh coriander (and chilli if using) and combine.
  5. Pan fry the falafel burgers in a tablespoon of oil; 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  6. Serve in a toasted brown seeded bun, with fresh lettuce, and the tomato salsa.
