Falafel Large


  • chickpeas 2 x 400g tins, drained
  • ground cumin 2 tsp
  • ground coriander 1 tsp
  • green chilli 2, chopped
  • garlic 2 cloves
  • spring onions ½ a bunch

How to make:

  • Put the first 9 ingredients in a food processor and whizz until broken down.
  • Tip into a bowl, mix in the halloumi, and form into 6 burgers.
