Falafels on lavash with Pomegranate, Lemon Olive and Parsley Salad


Emily is obsessed with making lists and quizzes at the moment.  What is your favourite colour? What’s your favourite shape? What is your favourite food?

She gets annoyed I can’t say one favourite food.

But Falafels would definitely be up there. This is a sunshine food and I hope we get some more sunshine soon!


  1. Spread hummus over a falafel, scatter over freshly grated carrot.
  2. Add the falafels , scatter with the pomegranate granita
  3. Drizzle over some plain yogurt


Enough for 4 people

I make these with a mix of bulgar wheat and chick peas
It makes them light and crumbly as I don’t like a chewy falafel
They are baked not fried

300g of tinned chick peas
100g of bulgar wheat soaked
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp of ground coriander
1 tsp of fresh or dried parsley
1 pinch of salt

  1. Mix together the ingredients form into small balls
  2. Brush with sunflower oil refrigerated for 30 minutes
  3. Place under a hot grill for 15 minutes


1 300g tin of chick peas
½ garlic clove
juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp of tahini
6 tbsp of olive oil or rapeseed oil

Blend together all the ingredients in the food processor.
