We love these nutty vegan falafel. Use pistachio nuts and fresh herbs for delicious greens. Serve the falafel in a sharing platter or serve in pitas with fresh vegetables.

Pistachio falafel recipe

Pistachio falafel
 ⅓ cup spinach
 ⅓ cup Herb Basil leaves
 400 g Chickpeas, rinsed & drained
 ½ onion, diced
 1 tbsp lemon juice
 1 tsp lemon zest, grated
 2 garlic cloves, crushed
 1 tsp ground coriander
 ½ tsp salt
 1 cup Pistachio Kernels
 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
 1 tsp ground cumin
 1 tsp baking soda
 1 tbsp Buckwheat Flour
 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Avocado Oil
Serve with (optional)
 pita bread
 fresh salad greens
 pickled onion
 feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.


Blend the basil and spinach in a blender for 10 seconds. Add the rest of the falafel ingredients and process until combined (a little chunky is best). Add extra salt and lemon juice to taste if desired.


Make small falafel balls with your hands or two spoons and place spaced on the prepared baking tray. Bake for 20–30 minutes until golden and cooked, turning halfway through.


Serve falafel with your favourite salad sides and pita bread. Yum!
