For the Falafel:

  • 1 cup dried red lentils
  • 1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup sprouted hemp seeds
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for frying

For the Cannabis-Infused Tahini Sauce (optional):

  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons cannabis-infused olive oil (adjust to your desired potency)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Water, as needed for consistency


  1. Prepare the Red Lentils: Start by boiling the red lentils in water for about 10 minutes, or until they are tender but not mushy. Drain and set them aside to cool.
  2. Blend the Falafel Mixture: In a food processor, combine the cooked red lentils, chickpeas, sprouted hemp seeds, red onion, garlic, fresh parsley, ground cumin, ground coriander, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Pulse until the mixture is well combined but still slightly coarse.
  3. Form Falafel Patties: Using your hands, shape the mixture into small falafel patties. You can make them round or flatten them slightly, depending on your preference.
  4. Heat Olive Oil: Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
  5. Fry the Falafel: Carefully place the falafel patties in the hot oil and fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  6. Prepare the Cannabis-Infused Tahini Sauce (Optional): In a separate bowl, whisk together the tahini, cannabis-infused olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Add water gradually until you achieve your desired consistency. This sauce adds a unique twist to the falafels and can be infused with cannabis for an extra kick.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Plate your freshly fried falafels and drizzle them with the cannabis-infused tahini sauce if desired. Garnish with additional fresh parsley or a sprinkle of sprouted hemp seeds for extra crunch.


These Red Lentil, Chickpea, and Sprouted Hemp Seed Falafels are a delightful fusion of flavors and a perfect addition to your cannabis-infused recipe collection.

Whether you choose to enjoy them with or without the cannabis-infused tahini sauce, you’re in for a treat. Remember to enjoy responsibly and be mindful of the potency when using cannabis-infused ingredients. Happy cooking and even happier dining!
