SPINACH & BROCCOLI FELAFEL WITH FETA

Directions

Place spinach leaves, broccoli, chickpeas, celery, onion, garlic, flour, tahini, cumin, turmeric, salt and pepper in a food processor. Blend to a coarse consistency. Transfer to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Spread a little flour onto a flat plate. Take large teaspoonfuls of mixture and roll into balls, then flatten slightly with the palm of the hand to make a little patty. Roll in flour to lightly coat. Pour oil into a frying pan to a level of 1 cm. Heat pan. Cook falafels for about 5 minutes, or until golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels.

To make the feta sauce, combine all ingredients. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate until required.

Serve falafels with broccoli, black olive, tomato and red onion salad.
