Falafel Burger

Falafel Burger

A delicious vegetarian burger and also great as part of a picnic – these heavily spiced falafel burgers are great served with a yogurt and cucumber dip and some tomato and chilli relish.

  1. I love falafel too! I love that you don’t skimp on the coriander. I actually like it in whole kernels rather than ground. When you get the pearl of coriander you’re like..in heaven!
