Bulgur salad:

  • 250 g Bulgur
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1-2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • small tomatoes
  • fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp pepper paste
  • 1-2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 5 tbsp oil
  • 1-2 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice
  • garlic salt & pepper
  • red pepper powder
  • chili as option
  • a bit sugar


  • vegan Feta cheese
  • almond flakes


  • 1 can chickpeas drained
  • 100 g chickpea flour
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • fresh parsley
  • coriander
  • cumin
  • salt & pepper
  • lemon juice
  • cashew butter as option
  • oil for frying to brush


  • Cover bulgur according package instructions with hot salted water and let it swell.
  • Meanwhile, slice your vegetables and chop parsley.
  • Roast pepper, carrots and onion in a pan with some oil.
  • Add pepper paste, tomato paste and bulgur and let cool down.
  • As soon as the bulgur has cooled down a bit, stir in oil, parsley and tomatoes and add vinegar + seasonings to desired taste.
  • For the falafel just blend all ingredients and add seasonings to taste.
  • Then form balls, rounds or patties as desired (as option you can spread a bit cashew butter in the middle).
  • Fry your falafel in a deep fryer or in a pot with hot oil for about 4-5 minutes or fry them in a pan, or brush your falafel with oil and bake them in the oven for about 25-30 minutes until golden brown (turn them around after 15 minutes).
  • At least roast almond flakes for the topping in a pan.
  • Serve falafel with bulgur salad + feta and roasted almond flakes.
  • Enjoy! ?

    Loved this recipe 🙂
    These falafels are really easy to make and taste delicious, just added a bit of crushed cashews inside and a few green olives to the bulgur salad. Was perfect and very filling !
