Chickpea falafel is a popular Middle Eastern dish made from ground chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) and a flavourful blend of herbs and spices. These small, crispy, and savoury patties are widely enjoyed as a vegetarian or vegan option in sandwiches, wraps, salads, or as a standalone appetizer. Chickpea falafel starts with dried chickpeas that are soaked and then ground or processed into a coarse texture. The chickpeas are traditionally combined with fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro, along with aromatic spices such as cumin, coriander, and garlic. Additional ingredients like onion, lemon juice, and a touch of flour or breadcrumbs are often added to bind the mixture together.
Once the falafel mixture is prepared, it is shaped into small balls or patties and can be deep-fried, shallow-fried, or baked until golden brown and crispy on the outside. The result is a delightful combination of a crispy exterior and a tender, flavourful interior.
- Chickpea falafel is loved for its rich, earthy flavour and satisfying texture. The blend of spices and herbs gives it a fragrant and aromatic profile, while the chickpeas provide a slightly nutty taste. The exterior becomes wonderfully crispy during cooking, providing a delightful contrast to the soft and flavourful centre.
- These versatile falafel patties can be enjoyed in numerous ways. They are commonly served in pita bread, along with a variety of fresh vegetables, tahini sauce, hummus, and pickles. They can also be added to salads, grain bowls, or enjoyed on their own as a protein-packed snack.
- Aside from their delicious taste, chickpea falafel offers several nutritional benefits. Chickpeas are an excellent source of plant-based protein and dietary fibre, making falafel a satisfying and nourishing option. They are also packed with essential vitamins and minerals, such as folate, iron, and magnesium.
