Delicious warm as a starter or a side with Abel & Cole's Spicy Tomato Dip, or stuff in a pita with salad and a tahini dressing.

  1. Pop the courgette in a sieve with a pinch of salt and pepper. Give it a squeeze with your hands to remove some of the water from it.
  2. Toss the courgette in a bowl and mix with the halloumi, breadcrumbs, mint, zest of the lemon and a squeeze of juice, chilli powder and the beaten egg.
  3. The mix should come together to form little falafels. If it's too wet, toss a few more breadcrumbs in. If it's too dry, add a little more grated courgette.
  4. The falafels will fry better if you chill the mix first but you can fry them straight away, too. Just get a large frying pan hot, add enough olive oil to generously coat the pan and cook on all sides till golden.
