The method 
For the falafel, combine all the ingredients until smooth in a food processor and transfer to a large bowl. Rinse the food processor as it will be used again for the red pepper dressing.

For the red pepper dressing 
Blend in the jar of roasted red pepper in the food processor along with the garlic and salt, and pepper blend until smooth transfer to a bowl and add the yoghurt and mix well.
The minted yoghurt dressing 
Mix the mint, yoghurt, lemon juice and a little salt and pepper.
For the falafel 

Preheat the oven to 180, place the falafel on an oven-proof dish or tray, drizzle a little olive oil over the top, and cook for 15 minutes.

Once cooking, arrange the salad on a large bowl or plate and drizzle the dressing over the top and around the plate or bowl. Once the falafel is cooked, place the falafel around the dish and sprinkle the red pepper powder on top.
