Delicious broad bean fritters, flavoured with aromatic spices and herbs.

Ingredients for 4 portions

  • Dried broad beans 400 g
  • Red onions 2
  • Clove of garlic 1
  • Coriander to taste
  • Cumin to taste
  • Parsley to taste
  • Flour 1 tbsp
  • A pinch of dry yeast
  • Extra virgin olive oil 40 g
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste



Soak the dried broad beans overnight in cold water. Drain them and blend in a food processor with the onions, the clove of garlic, the flour and the spices as preferred. The consistency of the mixture should be so that the falafels won’t break apart but are not too pasty.


Shape into balls, pressing them slightly at the edges and bake them in the oven on a baking tray with oil until they are golden.


Serve with yoghurt and fresh salad (tomatoes, root vegetables and cucumbers).

Carbon footprint

To limit our impact on the environment, we advise you to remain within 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, including all the courses you eat. Bear in mind that plant-based dishes are more likely to have a low environmental impact.

Even though some of our suggestions exceed the recommended 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, that doesn't mean you should never make them; it's the overall balance that counts. Regularly eating a healthy and eco-friendly diet in the long term offsets even the dishes with the most impact, as long as you don't make them too often.
