Meal Prep Week 2 ( Quinoa falafel / Watermelon )

Pin It

I love falafels, it is a good meat alternative. Made with chickpeas, vegetables and spices, it is also a great protein boost. Spread with hummus, it is perfect on top of a salad or in a pita. I have been eating falafel for the past month now. Either from Veggie Path  or when I go to eat at La Panthère Verte/The Green Panther .

I love making my food from scratch, so I decided to make my own version of falafel, following the recipe of Vegangela

1. Mix eggs and spices together

How simple can preparing your own food be !

( Smhh, I know the falafel are fried in oil, not so healthy, but HEY it’s all about balance, RIGHT ! ) .
