Baked Beetroot Falafel with Spinach Mint and Pea Dressing

My version of beetroot falafel is so easy to make, yet it tastes amazing. Served with spinach dressing with a hint of mint for that extra flavour.


Prep Time: 1,5 hrs
Cook Time: 15 mins
Makes : 20


  • For the Beetroot Falafel:
  • 2 medium beetroots, cooked
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • small bunch fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • For the Spinach Mint and Pea Dressing:
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup raw peanuts
  • 1/4 cup water

  1. Make the beetroot falafel. Place all the ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
