These falafel epitomise the amazingness of plant based ingredients for me.
So simple, requiring little more effort than leisurely adding things to a food processor, they are bursting with flavour and can easily be adapted to different tastes. For those less in love with herbs simply use all spinach, possibly with a small amount of rocket or watercress, or just stick to parsley as opposed to the dill and coriander. If you don’t have the whole quantity of the nuts I’ve used add pine nuts or a few walnuts (but no more than 50g of these as they can add a bitterness) or for nut free opt for equal quantities of sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
From a nutritional perspective the ingredients here are all absolute superstars as well. Chickpeas are rich in dietary fibre and plant based protein, aiding in satiety and blood sugar regulation. Then there’s the minerals they’re bursting with, and that’s before we even mention the whole body health supporting effects that all those beautiful greens have …
Basically these little babies are total plant based powerhouses, and ones that grace my dinner table at least once a week so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! 😀
