Falafels

Who is a fan of falafels?! 

I like falafels specially because they have very macro in them. They have plenty protein, complex carbs and fats. So I can enjoy falafels in a salad or anything in the side.

Thesr falafels recipe was taken from a healthy living magazine amd I adapted it. They contain pistachios and kale (or spinach) which make them unique.

Ingredients:

yield: 29 falafels

1 cup cooked chickpeas

2T cornmeal flour

1cup green leaves

1/2 cup pistachios

1/2 tsp parsley

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp turmeric and paprika

1/2 cup water or vegetable broth

A pinch of sea salt

Procedure:

1- Put the chickpeas, pistachios and water in a blender and blend until mixed.

2- Add the flour with the spices and blend one more time. The texture should be like sand. Not watery and not fully compacted.

3- Pre heat the oven at 350ºF.

4- Spray coconut oil in a baking tray.

5- Take 1T of the falafel mixture, shape it into a ball and flatten it a little bit. Repeat the process with the remaining batter until finished.

6- Bake during 10 mins for one side, flip and cook 10 more mins.

7- Finally enjoy as your preferrence.
