Falafels

 

These protein packed flavourful morsels make a perfect  lunch or  supper the day before a race. 

 

  • 1 tin of chickpeas or any other bean (drained)
  • 1 clove of crushed garlic
  • 2 chopped chillies or 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Chopped celery leaves (take them off the tops of your celery stalks) 
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp hot paprika
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp black pepper 
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Bread crumbs (optional)

Put everything in your food processor and blend with the S blade until it forms a thick paste.

Shape into small palm sized balls. Roll in bread crumbs if you wish but this is not necessary.

Bake at 180 for 20 – 30 mins until hot through. 

Serve them up in soft pitta breads with mashed avocado or hummus and lots of salsa and fresh veg bits of your choice.
