    Looking for pre-prepped healthy lunch inspiration? Try our air-fry falafels: healthy & perfect for both vegan and vegetarian days. We’re going to need a pressure cooker with an air fry setting, so get yours at the ready. Just 4 Simple steps. Let’s go!

    Here's what you'll need...

    For the falafel mixture:

    • 1 small onion quartered
    • 3 cloves chopped garlic
    • 50g parsley
    • 50g coriander
    • 50g spring onions
    • ½ tsp chilli flakes
    • ½ tsp salt
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • 1 can chickpeas – rinsed & drained
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 4 tbsp plain flour

    For the salad:

    • Hummus
    • Sliced tomatoes, cucumber, onions, pita and tahini

    Here's how it's done...

    Step 1

    First, add your ingredients into the food processor: Onion, garlic, parsley, coriander, spring onions, chilli flakes, salt and cumin. Then, pulse 2-3 times. Add one can of chickpeas (that have already been rinsed & drained). Pulse 2-3 times again, then give it a good stir with a spatula.

    Step 2

    Next, add baking powder, then the flour. Pulse 3-4 times until you have a paste-like consistency. Then cover your mixture with cling-film & refrigerate for 2 hours.

    Step 3

    Pre-heat your air fryer to 177 Degrees Celsius and line a baking tray. Then roll that delicious mixture into 12 balls and place each one on the tray with a good space in between each of them. Next, drizzle them in olive oil. Air fry for 14 minutes, making sure you turn them all over at the halfway point: 7 minutes in. Set your alarm so you don’t forget!

    Step 4

    Finally, add a dollop of hummus or two or get all MasterChef and smear it across the plate. Add some sliced tomatoes, cucumber, onions, pita and tahini.

    Serve up one healthy, tasty lunch; packed full of middle eastern flavours. Any leftovers can go in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze the falafel for no more than 3 months.
