Moringa Falafel

          Falafel are a hit with meat-eaters, veggies and vegans alike but the typical, deep-fried kind aren't the healthiest. These simple, homemade falafel are still crispy and delicious but are baked instead of fried and include our mighty moringa for extra green power! 


          2 tsp Aduna Moringa Powder
          3/4 cup + 2 tbsp dried chickpeas, soaked overnight OR 1 can of chickpeas, drained & rinsed
          1/4 of a red onion, roughly chopped (approx. 1/2 cup)
          2 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
          1/4 cup loosely packed parsley
          1/4 cup loosely packed coriander
          1 tbsp olive oil
          1 tbsp lemon juice
          1 tsp ground cumin
          1 tsp ground coriander
          3/4 tsp salt
          1 tsp baking powder
          2 tbsp chickpea flour or plain flour


          Preheat oven to 180C & lightly grease a large baking sheet.

          Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse 15-20 times, until the chickpeas are chopped and the ingredients are fully mixed. The mixture should form a ball when you squeeze it in your hand.

          Roll the mixture into large balls, place on the prepared baking sheet and gently flatten into patties approx. 1/2 an inch thick. Brush with a little olive oil and bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through baking time. 

          Serve in a pita with hummus or as a salad topper with Tahini & Moringa Dressing.
