I usually make them or I'm lucky enough to have a great local Lebanese restaurant that I sometimes get from there! My sister lived in Israel for 5 years so I've always used her Israeli falafel recipe - you can use tin chickpeas but I use dry , you just have to remember the night before to soak them !
2 cups dry chickpeas ( soak overnight and just rinse the next morning)
1 small brown onion, roughly chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tbsp plain flour
Pinch sea salt
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp black pepper
Pinch of ground cardamom
Grapeseed or peanut oil for frying
Literally put all in a food processor and pulse until all mixed - don't over process or it will be too runny
Cover and put into fridge for 60 mins
Mould into little cakes and shallow fry - my sister puts cayenne pepper in hers but for DS I leave it out

Elijahs Mum I love reading your recipe ideas! You've helped me so much with feeding my 1 yr old dd over the last few months and I too use chia and seeds in nearly everything :-)

Subbing so I can come back for that falafel recipe!
A snack suggestion - frozen peas...still frozen!
My daughter LOVES them, and the novelty hasn't worn off. Easy to prepare too
is 2 cups dried chickpeas the equivalent of 1 can of chickpeas or 2?
I'm feeding 2 adults and a toddler, not sure on quantities. Also, can the falafels be frozen before or after cooking?
