every once in a while I treat myself to cauldrons falafel and they have changed their recipe soo much better too the point the kids love them (they didn't like them before) now the problem with this is it is really expensive to buy enough for 5 of us so I'd love to make something similar a nd veganise it (honey to agave no probs I think) these are the ingredients

chickpeas (46%)
bulghir wheat
Morocan paste (12%)[apricots (apricots, riceflour) dates,red wine,vinegar, sunflower oil,spices (paprika, cinnamon, cumin,ginger, black pepper),honey,garlic puree,cornflour, salt, chili puree, coriander, sugar]
rice starch
wheat flour
garlic puree

i unlike other falafel these are very smooth and moist no need for any dips whatsoever. I would like to replace the honey with agave and dont' want to use the wine at all do you think that will affect the flavour a lot? and with the paste how much per herb/spice would you use?

We tried them and love them! I buy them and keep them in the freezer. We have them weekly for lunch. Good for those days when I have no idea what to make.

OMG indeed! After encouraging my daughter to try new foods, she's just spat out her Cauldron Falafel and insisted it cut her mouth... I told her not to be silly but after a closer look, it turned out to be a sharp piece of plastic!!

Not too hard to make. Go to your local library and get a recipe book, or go  look through these recipes:


During Lent, I'll make a bunch on the weekends in batches.
