This recipe is a the product of a trial and error development of my own. Middle Eastern food like falafel is the inspiration. I hope you enjoy them. They can be served cold with salad or warm with stir-fry vegetables. Also good served on their own as a snack or dipped in your favourite sauce. To add your own personal touch you could experiment with your favourite herb & spice blends. Freezes well for three months. Preparation time excludes time used to soak chickpeas. If desired you can omit the 150 g water and the bouillon granules or powder and replace with 150 ml stock liquid. Italian herbs are a blend of marjoram, basil, red bell peppers, oregano, rosemary, parsley and thyme.
