The dish is also suitable for vegetarians

Serves: 6


  • 250 g dried chickpeas (or 2×400 g canned chickpeas, drained)
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 handful chopped parsley (without the stems)
  • 1 handful of coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp hot red pepper
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 servings (12g) Formula 3 Custom Protein Powder
  • 2 servings (16 g) Beta heart®
  • 1 packet (21.5 g) Roasted Herbalife soybeans, hulled
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 120 g of tahini
  • 120 g of low-fat yogurt
  • Optional: a handful of green leaves (lettuce) – for decoration when serving

Method of preparation:

  1. If you use dry chickpeas: soak them in cold water the night before; pour more liquid because the chickpeas will absorb it.
  2. Drain the chickpeas and grind them in a blender. Transfer it to a large bowl.
  3. Then, in the blender, finely chop the head of onion, garlic and herbs – until you get a slurry; add chickpeas. Mix well again.
  4. Then add the spices, salt, Formula 3, Custom Protein Powder, Beta heart® and soybeans. Stir well. Form balls and fry them in a pan with a little oil until golden – or bake them in the oven (20-25 minutes at 180°C, again until golden), sprinkled with oil.
  5. While the falafels are cooking, mix the tahini and yogurt; put spices to taste.
  6. Serve the falafels hot or cold – with yogurt with tahini and green salad if desired.
