Labour Day Falafel

Labour Day Falafel



It is so weird how nothing changes yet everything changes! Here I am again, another day has gone by, and we are preparing as a nation to go into alert level 4 of COVID-19 outbreak. It is difficult to predict the impact that it will have on the spread of the virus but I am hoping that people won’t become complacent and stop sticking to the restrictions. I won’t lie, it’s been tough, and we all know now that it will continue to be tough for a little while but we are all doing the right thing. We really need to work together as a cohesive community, use this time to address the weaknesses of our society and imagine a better future with a new better normal. In the meantime, I hope this Labour Day Falafel Recipe will help bring you some comfort like it has for me.



2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 small red onion, quarter-sliced
Large handful of fresh coriander
Juice from 1 lime
1 tbsp Dukkah powder
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp cumin powder
A pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
2-3 tbsp almond flour




1. Preheat the oven to 180oC and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Transfer all ingredients, except almond flour, to a food processor and pulse making sure to leave some texture intact.
3. Place into a mixing bowl, add flour and stir well with your hands.
4. Shape mixture into balls, flatten them slightly with a spatula, then brush with a little olive oil and place on the baking paper.
5. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown
8. Serve with Tzatziki dip. Cucumbers and fresh herbs are cracking additions should you find some loitering in your fridge.
