This ancient food from the Middle East is healthy, meat-free and as delicious now as it was when it was invented. The diverse flavours of coriander, cumin, parsley and chickpeas are given a fiery jolt with the harissa paste, but cooled off nicely by Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise.

  • 2 onions
  • 2 slices of toast
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons harissa paste
  • 1 aubergine
  • 1 tomato
  • 20 g Flora Buttery
  • 40 grams lettuce
  • 1 flatbread

  • 1 Put the chickpeas, onions, toasted bread, parsley, baking powder, flour, and garlic through a meat grinder then mix together in a bowl with the finely-chopped coriander, cumin, salt (if you are so inclined) and pepper to taste.
  • 2 Slice the eggplant, add salt and fry it in a pan until it softens. Pinch one of the fried slices for yourself while no-one is looking, eat it quickly and try not to burn your mouth.
  • 3 Mix Hellmann's mayonnaise with the Harissa paste in a small bowl for a spicy taste of Morocco.
  • 4 Shape the falafel mixture into patties and slowly fry them in margarine or oil.
  • 5 Spread the buns with Hellmann's mayonnaise, add the falafel, the slices of eggplant, tomatoes and mayonnaise.
