Falafel Hash


While I have made falafel before, I find that it's a whole process for patties that end up being a lot of extra work given that this recipe is, in essence, deconstructed then accompanied by other complementary vegetables.

6 cups


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 8 mushrooms, halved and sliced

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 yam, peeled and cubed

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon onion (nigella) seeds

  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds

  • 1 teaspoon chile powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ½ head cauliflower, chopped

  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • ¾ cup vegetable stock

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 3 cups fresh spinach, coarsely chopped

  • 1 bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 1 lime, juiced


  1. Heat oil in a large flat-sided skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 2 minutes. Add yam and cook for 2 minutes.

  2. Stir cumin, coriander, onion seeds, black mustard seeds, chile powder, paprika, and turmeric into the skillet; cook and stir until evenly distributed, about 2 minutes. Add cauliflower, chickpeas, salt, and black pepper; stir until combined.

  3. Mix vegetable stock and tomato paste together in a small bowl; pour into the skillet. Cover and cook until yam is tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in spinach, parsley, lemon juice, and lime juice and cook until flavors combine, about 1 minute.

Cook's Note:

Use split or whole mustard seeds.
