Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190°C (CircoTherm®).

For the falafel, blend the chickpeas, parsley, coriander, water, psyllium husks, cumin seeds, salt, pepper and lemon zest in a food processor, or use your hands to make a dough. Shape into balls, roll them in sesame seeds and place them on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Bake at 200°C for 15-20 minutes until the falafel are crispy. Mix the ingredients for the dip to a fine cream with a hand blender or high-performance blender, season to taste.

Step 2

Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, maple syrup and salt for the salad dressing. Rinse and dry the salad, and pour over the salad dressing. Arrange the finished falafel on top of the salad with the hemp dip.

Cooking is all about new ideas and fresh inspiration – and NEFF ovens are no different. With CircoTherm®, you can evenly cook completely different dishes at one time, using all oven levels, without any intermingling flavours. This hot air seals food quickly, retaining moisture and preventing flavour transfer.

CircoTherm® works by drawing air in from the oven via a powerful stainless steel fan. It then heats up the air and forces it right back into the oven cavity through strategically placed ducts in the rear wall.

As a result, the desired temperature is reached much more quickly and is distributed more evenly throughout the oven.
