Method
 
  • Falafel:
  • 3 sweet potatoes, dry roasted and peeled.
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp Ground cumin
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ bunch of coriander
  • olive oil
  • 2-4 heaped tbsp. of chickpea/garam flour
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • Humous:
  • 2 tbsps of frozen Peas
  • 40g feta cheese
  • heaped tbsp. of Tahini
  • 3 tbsps of olive oil
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • Pickle veggies:
  • 2 tbsps of sea salt
  • pinch of caster sugar
  • 2 Beetroots, peeled and finely sliced into batons
  • 2 Turnips, peeled and finely sliced into batons
  • a good splash of white wine vinegar
  • Salad:
  • ½ a cucumber, seeds removed and sliced into 4cm lengths
  • 6 cherry tomatoes (or 3 large vine tomatoes) seeds removed and roughly chopped
  • ½ a small bunch of coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 litre of vegetable oil (for frying)
  • Lebanese flat bread/khobez breads
  • For serving:
  • ½ a small bunch of basil, leaves picked
  • ½ a small bunch of mint, leaves picked
  • ½ a small coriander, leaves picked
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsps of Yoghurt (optional)
First make the homous, place all the ingredients into a small hand blender and whizz everything together. Season to taste and place into a bowl ready for later.

Place the beetroot and turnips into a small bowl, along with the salt, sugar and vinegar. Allow to pickle for 5-10 minutes and then before using drain the liquid and put into a bowl.

Place a large pan on the heat and fill ¾ full with oil.

For the falafel remove the skin and scoop out flesh, add to a food processor along with the spices, garlic fresh coriander and olive oil. Blitz up to form a paste and then add the flour, blitz again to combine- add more flour if needed. You want a workable mixture- which you can scoop. Season to taste then using an ice cream scoop and spoon create little falafels. They don't have to be perfect.

Carefully lower 2-3 falafels into the hot oil and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden and crispy. Drain onto kitchen roll and then place in a bowl.

Now it is time to build your falafel. Place each component in front of you, and then build it up: flatbread, 1 tbsp of homous, 3 falafel, some salad, pickled veggies, herbs and then top with some chilli and yoghurt if you fancy it. Roll up in greaseproof paper, tear off the top and dig in!!!!
