Recipe: Low GI Cauliflower Falafels


The sunny days are coming back, and with them: picnics! We found you a great recipe of low GI falafels to enjoy in the sun.

Ingredients (For 8 Falafels)

  • 1 medium cauliflower head
  • 65g ground slivered almonds
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour


  1. First chop up the florets from the cauliflower head with a knife, then add them to a blender and pulse until it’s blended but still has a grainy texture.
  2. Grind the almonds in a similar manner, so as to still have some texture.
  3. Combine the ground cauliflower and ground almonds in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well blended.
  4. Heat some oil until sizzling. While it’s heating, form the mix into 8 three-inch patties that are about the thickness of a hockey puck.
  5. Fry them until browned on one side and then flip and cook the other side. Don’t flip too soon! You should see the edges turning brown before you attempt it – maybe 4 minutes or so per side. Put the falafels on paper towels to drain excess oil.

Bon appétit !
