Gina Narramore

Gina Narramore




1 large courgette, trimmed and grated

2 x 400g tins chickpeas, drained and rinsed

3 tbsp plain flour

2 tsp harissa

handful coriander, roughly chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 lemon, zested and juiced

2 tbsp sunflower oil 

For The Tzatziki

1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

6 tbsp Greek yogurt

handful mint leaves, sliced

  • Wrap the courgette in a clean tea towel and squeeze out any excess moisture.Set aside.
  • Put the chickpeas, flour, harissa, coriander, 1 garlic clove, the lemon zest and a little seasoning in a food processor. Whizz until smooth. Add half the courgette and pulse briefly to combine.
  • Divide the mixture into 12 equal balls, then flatten into patties.
  • Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the falafels in 2 batches for around 2-3 minutes each side, until golden and crisp. Set aside and keep warm if eating straight away. If making ahead, cool, then chill for up to 2 days; enjoy at room temperature or warmed in the oven.
  • Meanwhile, mix the remaining courgette with the lemon juice, olive oil, yogurt, mint and the remaining crushed garlic. Season to taste and serve with the falafels.
