Spinach Falafel



I don’t normally use spinach when I make falafels but as we have got plenty of perpetual spinach at the moment, I thought it would be a good to add some to my normal falafel recipe. We tried them today and they worked well.

Spinach Falafel


  • 1/2 cup dried chickpeas, soaked in water overnight and then drained
  • 2 teaspoons of cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • 30 large perpetual spinach leaves (or equivalent)
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons gram flour
  • juice of 1/2 lemon


    1. Blend the chickpeas in a food processor.
    2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again to form a dough.
    3. Heat some oil in a frying pan.
    4. Form the falafel mixture into small falafels and fry for a couple of minutes on each side before turning.
