  • 200 g cauliflower rice
  • 1 ½ tsp tahini
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp red onion roughly diced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander (cilantro) roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley roughly chopped
  • 1 medium egg
  • 55 g ground almonds
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • tsp black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F), 180°C (350°F) for fan assisted.
  • Squeeze the riced cauliflower in a paper towel or clean tea towel to remove any excess liquid.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a food processor, apart from the egg. Pulse very briefly to combine.
  • Add the egg and pulse again to combine. The mixture should be fairly coarse but easy to roll - do not over process.
  • Divide the mixture into 12 even portions and roll into into balls.
  • Arrange the falafel across the greased baking tray and transfer to the oven to bake for
    18 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown all over.
