Cooking tips

Falafel Mix:

(If frozen) Defrost in the fridge the night before

Mix the Mix – Before you start, to evenly blend the herbs and liquids and let it seat outside to get to room temp.

Turn the heat on – Set the deep fryer to 165°c

Roll the ball – Create 18-20 grams balls by hand or buy our dedicate falafel spoon

Let the show begin – Place the balls in the oil and let them fizzle until golden (approx. 2-3 min)

Get cheeky with it – Indulge yourself on a crunchy and fresh falafel ball

Storing: keep the mix/cooked ball refrigerated for up to 4 days.

Freeze them, label them and they last for 3 months.

 

Raw Frozen balls or patties

Enjoy the freshness of the mix already shaped into a ball.

Do not defrost! They are ready to be cooked.

What is the Falafel Patty / Burger?

Cheeky Pea’s falafel patty or burger is a very popular choice for vegetarian diners and stands out from the rest. You can use them inside a burger bun (we personally love the milk bun combination), inside a lettuce leaf or on a plate with some salads and tahini on top.

What is the falafel shelf life?

  • Mix:

The mix can be kept in the fridge (under 4c) for up to 6 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

  • Cooked Falafel balls:

It can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days but if you can freeze them you will enjoy better results. They can be defrosted on a microwave for 30 sec or in the oven (180 cel) for 4 min and we can guarantee they will come out exactly the same!

  • Frozen raw & shaped:

It can be kept in the freezer for up to 2 month.

What are the quantities you work by?

We work by the kilo with all our products. One kg balls will result in around 50 pre made Falafels of 20gr each. The mix comes in 5kg buckets which will ends in different amounts depending on how you use it. One kg patties will result in 10 patties of 90grams each

Can I re-heat the cooked balls?

You sure can, either in oven, microwave or even in your sandwich press.

What are the nutritious benefits of Falafel?

With so many of them we had to choose a few:

  • Falafel contains lots of vitamin c, iron, calcium and many minerals as well (from the fresh garlic and herbs)
  • It is rich in plant protein with about 2 gr per ball, falafel stand in handily for red meat.
  • 3 falafel balls gives you about 26% of the daily recommended fibre and as a result, falafel can improve digestive system and decrees the absorbance of both cholesterol and simple sugar.

I’m not sure how to incorporate Falafel into my existing menu, can you help me with that?
