These ones are yummy - can't remember where I got the original recipe from - might even have been somewhere on here!

Minted felafels - serves 4
Free on green.

4 spring onions
1 red chilli
400g chick peas
2 garlic cloves
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp each of freshly chopped corriander and mint
a pinch of ground nutmeg
1 tsp each of ground cumin and corriander
half tsp baking powder
fry light.

Pre heat oven to 220'c/gas 7. chop the spring onions and deseed and chop the chilli. Place in a food processor with the chick peas and blend till fairly smooth, add the garlic, egg yolk, herbs and spices and baking powder and blend again till well mixed.

Roll the mixture into small balls, place on a baking tray, spray with fry light and bake for 12-15 mins.

Serve with couscous and salad. I also make a dip of low fat natural yoghurt mixed with some mint sauce and a tsp of sweetner.
