Hi everyone,

We love falafel so much…mmm, It’s one of our favourite vegetarian dishes. We are big fans of this recipe and the best part is that it only has a few ingredients. We try to avoid the frying pan, so we bake them instead, it is the healthier option for us and they are so yummy. You can fry them if you prefer it  though! It’s just a suggestion 🙂

INSTRUCTION

  1. Soak the chickpeas in cold water two days before (at least 48hours).
  2. Wash & drain the chickpeas very well and after that introduce them to a food processor with the rest of the ingredients (red onions, garlic cloves, parsley, ground cumin, baking powder, salt & pepper).
  3. Blend until everything come together (you will obtain a crumbly dough), then shape into Falafel balls with your hands (add some chickpea flour to help).
  4. Bake around 25 minutes 170ºC until they are golden brown.
  5. Refrigerate or freeze the rest of the Falafel balls you are not gonna eat!

You will need this in your plant-based diet. Perfect in all veggie dishes. Serve your Baked Falafel with Sweet potatoes and grilled eggplant with strawberries, spinach leaves and some avo with some capsicum on top:

Happy 2016! This year is gonna be awesome 🙂 New year, new chances, new opportunities.

2015 was full of love, fun and adventures. We created this beautiful space together to share our experiences, what we eat and how we live. We travelled a lot this year (New York, Australia…). We met gorgeous people. We fell in love. We ate well, very well. And the most important thing: We see the world through different eyes.

We are really excited to see what’s to come this year 2016!
