I know, I know … this is supposed to be a baking blog but everyone needs something savoury once in a while. And this is an extra-specially good savoury recipe or I wouldn’t be sharing it with you!
The idea of a pea falafel came from Cassie Best’s recipe here. I changed it radically so here’s my version.
Ingredients; (Serves 2)
For the falafels;
400 g frozen peas
1 garlic clove, crushed
400 g can chickpeas
2 tsp cumin seeds
Zest of 1 lime
For the couscous;
40 g couscous
A little lime juice
Step 1. Thaw the frozen peas in a colander under the hot tap.
Step 2. Whizz the peas, chickpeas, garlic, 2 tsp cumin seeds, lime zest and salt and pepper up in a food processor.
Step 3. Form the mixture into patties and turn in a little flour.
Step 4. Fry in a pan until browned.
Serve with couscous salsa and a dollop of natural yoghurt.
