MAKES 10-12 FALAFELS

  • 350 g broad beans, cooked and peeled
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • salt and pepper
  • vegetable oil for cooking

Whiz the broad beans with the garlic and herbs in a food processor. (Do not process the bean mixture too much. It must not become a purée.) Put the mixture in a bowl, add the spices and mix in with a fork. Season to taste. Shape 10-12 little balls, then flatten them gently. Pan-fry with a little olive oil over high heat, or fry in a deep fryer. When the falafels are done, place them on kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil.
