How To Make Beetroot Falafel And Tahini Sauce?

  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Place the rinsed and drained chickpeas on the baking tray and cook for 10 minutes or until they are slightly cracked and dry.
  • Chop the beets with the cutting or chopping attachment of the food processor and put them in a bowl. Then chop the garlic and parsley into small pieces in the food processor.
  • Pulse chickpeas, beets and all other ingredients in a food processor for 20-30 seconds, being careful not to overmix.
  • Be careful not to puree the mixture. If the mixture remains watery, solidify it with some oatmeal.
  • If it’s too dry, soften it with tahini or lemon juice this time.
  • Prepare large meatballs from falafel dough and press lightly with your finger. Heat a large skillet over medium or medium-high heat.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cook the falafel for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Carefully turn it over and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes. If you wish, place the falafel on a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  • Brush with oil for a crispier texture. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until crispy on the outside at 200 degrees normal or 180 degrees fan setting.
  • Turn the falafels inside out after the first 15 minutes. Mix the tahini, salt and garlic and whisk until you get a creamy sauce.
  • Add water little by little while whisking. After preparing the sauce, pour it over the cooked falafels and serve.
