Funky Falafels,

 

I love Falafels and I used to spend a fortune buying already made versions until I realised how easy and quick they are to make at home. Then of course I started to get creative and add more veggies and different spices and herbs until I mastered these funky falafels.

 

I used

2 cloves of garlic 

half ahead of broccoli

handful of peas

1 white onion

1 can of Organic chickpeas

1 teaspoon each of of coriander and cumin and salt

2 tbsp of ground almonds

1/2 baking powder

Rapeseed oil

 

Break the broccoli into florets and quarter the onion and add then to a food processor with the can of half drained chick peas and blend until a chunky puree pour into a bowl and add the spices, ground almond and peas and mix with hand.

Heat a frying pan with rapeseed oil and roll into walnut size balls and shallow fry for a few minutes until golden brown.

Serve with either a large green salad and salsa or in a warm pitta with a tahini dressing and salad for a more filling lunch!

Enjoy! If you make these funky falafels please post a picture to integral and use the hashtag TheFoodRemedy so I can see all your wonderful tasty creations!!
