Preheat oven to 190˚C. Place balls on an oiled tray. Spray with oil spray. Bake for 25 minutes, turning once, or until golden and cooked through. To make the tabouli, place drained freekeh in a bowl. Shave fennel and add to bowl with parsley, mint, onions and walnuts. Whisk the oil, juice, molasses and garlic in a jug. Add to the tabouli. Toss to combine. Scatter over pomegranate seeds. Serve falafel and tabouli topped with a spoonful of yoghurt.
