Prep time: 15 minutes

Baking time: 30-40 minutes



1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1 brown onion, diced 

4 cloves garlic 

1 tin red kidney beans 

1 tin chickpeas 

1/2 cup hemp seeds 

1/2 cup True Plant Protein in Natural

1 tbsp nutritional yeast 

1 tsp ground cumin 

1 tsp smoked paprika 

1 tsp ground coriander seed 

1 tsp oregano 

Pinch chilli flakes

  1. Sautée the onion and garlic with 1 tsp olive oil until translucent. Allow to cool. 

  2. Once cooled, add the onion and garlic along with all of the remaining ingredients into a food processor and process until combined and a chunky consistency.  

  3. Form the mixture into heaped tablespoon sized balls and press onto a baking tray- it should make about 15 falafels. 

  4. Brush the falafels with the extra olive oil.
