Healthy falafel recipe

by | Jan 7, 2017 | Main Meals, Recipes

These tasty falafels contain Chia seeds which are chockablock full of all sorts of nutrients critical for fertility health. Omega-3 EFAs are essential in regulating hormones, increasing blood flow to the uterus, reducing sensitivity to the hormone prolactin (which can suppress ovulation), normalising your cycle, and – most importantly – increasing your cervical mucus, which is needed to help the sperm reach the egg.


Serves 2

  • 400g chickpeas, tinned
  • 30g spinach leaves, washed
  • 1⁄4 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1⁄2 tsp cumin, ground
  • 1⁄2 tsp coriander, ground
  • Pinch chilli powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1⁄2 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, for frying


  1. Drain the chickpeas and place in food processor. Add the chopped onion, spinach (making sure there are no large stalks), spices, garlic, lemon juice and blend until smooth. Add the chia seeds and blend for another few seconds to mix them in.
  2. Divide the mixture into small balls (note if they are not firm enough you can put the mixture into the freezer for 5 minutes to firm up).
  3. Heat a frying pan with the olive oil and once hot, fry the falafel balls until golden, adding more oil if needed.
  4. Serve with a mixed salad, hummus and warm pitta bread.
