Edamame Falafels with Tahini Dressing

I made up this recipe as something unique for my Renew Reset Recharge® programme and wanted to make a falafel from something other than just chickpeas. These falafels can be adapted for people who find beans and chickpeas hard to digest, simply change the chickpea flour to a gluten-free flour.


For Renew Reset Recharge® you can enjoy the dressing as well as some extra avocado instead of adding extra carbs at your meal even, if you are still wanting to lose weight. If you are following Renew Reset Recharge® as a lifestyle programme or way of life, then add in the beetroot hummus too. You can also add some healthy carbs– these falafels are also great in a wrap!  I worked this out as an average amount of beans being 135g per person (including the beans themselves and the chickpea flour). This would go up to around 165g if you add in the hummus.

Ingredients, serves 4


400g edamame beans, frozen
1 bunch of spring onions, finely sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon chili flakes
30g fresh coriander, roughly chopped
70g chickpea flour


150g Greek or full fat yogurt
2 tablespoons tahini
juice of 1 lemon or 3 tablespoons lemon juice

Salad – 250g salad vegetables per portion, choose from:

  • watercress, rocket and salad leaves
  • cucumber, diced
  • radishes, finely sliced
  • spring onions
  • red cabbage, finely sliced

1 tablespoon black sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds or 1 sprinkling of pomegranate seeds.



  1. Heat 100ml water in a pan and add the frozen edamame beans. Boil for 4-5 minutes then drain.
  2. Add all the falafel ingredients to a food processor and pulse until well combined.
  3. Roll into 16 balls and flatten slightly to allow for more even cooking
  4. Heat some oil in a frying pan and gently fry for around 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through.


  1. Mix the yogurt, tahini and lemon juice together and whisk together until smooth.
  2. Add a little water if needed to make it runny enough to pour.


  1. Chop all the vegetables and arrange on plates. Top with the falafels and drizzle with the tahini dressing, add a good amount of hummus and sprinkle with the seeds or pomegranate seeds.

What others have said about the Renew Reset Recharge programme


Dominique devised a personalised nutrition programme with supplements, specifically for my health. I truly could not recommend Dominique more highly and am so grateful to her. Dominique is lovely, funny as well as being a very talented nutritionist who puts her all into helping you. I have gained control over my life and my eating habits. As a result my confidence and happiness have massively increased too.


“My sessions with Dominique have proved invaluable and I knew for a fact, that I was in good hands. I wish I had been to see her year’s ago. Dominique is such a knowledgable nutritionist with so many years of experience. I knew I could trust her implicitly with my health.”


“RRR has become a way of life for me. I am a live to eat person & it’s such a relief to have found a way to eat delicious food and maintain my weight. My gut really appreciates the changes I have made with Dominique’s help and I am much happier with my new self.”

Sheila White

“If you are fed up with bullshit diets, stubborn belly fat and yo-yo weight loss and weight gain – consider this plan! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Anna, Surrey

“I can highly recommend Dominique’s Renew Reset Recharge programme. It’s packed full of information, advice, recipes and support. It’s easy to follow. I wish all GP’s / hospitals / education had access to this, to help heal people from the inside and to take preventative measures by investing in their health. It’s improved my brain fog, aches and pains, inflammation, itching and I’ve lost weight. This is my new forever way of nourishing myself (and my husband)!”

Rosalyn Olson

I started the RRR programme as I felt that I wasn’t eating the right things for my body and constantly felt not quite ‘well’. I also hoped to lose the lockdown weight that had crept on.
The programme has exceeded my expectations, unlike any diet that I have followed in the past, I haven’t felt denied or obsessed with the next meal, instead I have changed my approach to food. Zoom call support has been great. I have lost weight without feeling hungry, instead I have more energy and feel better. I am going to maintain the RRR principles to lose the last few pounds and will continue to enjoy the delicious recipes going forward, my only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner!

Dominique’s Instagram posts kept catching my eye, so I gave her Renew Reset Recharge programme a go. The results have been quite remarkable – I have lost 7kgs (over a stone) in a month. That alone is fabulous, but more importantly, I have learnt what I need to put into my body to make it work well. My concentration and energy have increased in inverse proportion to my weight and waist. I quickly started to look forward to new recipes and meal ideas, and enjoy foods that I had previously thought of as rather wacky. I genuinely believe that this way of eating has become a way of life for me. Thank you for all your support and ideas, Dominique!

Amanda, Surrey

“I feel new! I feel set for the future! And, I feel in charge! The Renew Reset Recharge course has given me the tools to make fantastic positive changes to my health and wellbeing. At 56, I was struggling with a number of niggling health issues – the worst of which was that I was teetering on the edge of Type II Diabetes! I now feel so much improvement and no longer experience the awful lethargy of a high carb diet. It’s like my taste buds have been reset too. I lost 15lbs in 28 days – WOW! I am now more energetic. The horrible brain fog feeling has completely disappeared. My sleep feels more restorative. My concentration is improved, and, the morning joint stiffness is gone. This is a glowing review – because, I couldn’t be happier that I did this. I intend to keep this plan part of my daily life. I know I can now have little ‘extras’ but the way forward is with Renew Reset Recharge at the core of all my meals. PS: the recipes are so good!”

Adrienne Copeland

“I have been following this lifestyle changing food programme for 2 weeks now, I feel completely energised, and realise that I actually LOVE the science behind this system, I find my relationship with food now to be a voyage of delicious discovery. I have not had my lunch time energy dip since DAY 1!!! PLUS I am losing weight without realising. Thank you Dominique”

Sophie Martinez

“This is an easy to follow, energising and effective programme that helped me regain my lost energy levels and lose the weight I needed (7Kg in 28 days). I highly recommend Dominique’s nutrition expert advice.”
