Blitz your chickpeas, 2 garlic clove and the bread into mush with a food processor. Add salt and pepper to season. Dig out your store cupboard spices and feel free to pop in some cumin or chilli powder to add another layer of flavour – not compulsory! Roll into small patties and pop into a dry pan and medium heat. Cook for 12-15 minutes or until each side turns golden.

Cook 1 garlic clove in a tablespoon of oil on low to medium heat until softened. Add your spinach and 50ml water and cook until your spinach has wilted. Season with salt.

Serve your falafel on top of the spinach and finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon!
