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
2. Add the peas
3. Add cooked quinoa
4. Form 12 balls, and flatten them slightly.
5. Soak out the oil of the falafels on a paper towel.
→ Peppers ( red, yellow and orange ), parsley and spinach to go with my falafels.
Separate in portions and put in plastic bags.
As a snack, I am having watermelon with walnuts and chia seeds.
Everything packed, I will simply GRAB & GO in the morning.
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 ! ) .
