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.
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
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.
