Healthy falafel recipe served with wraps and salad
This healthy falafel recipe served with wraps and carrot salad. The falafels are raw - apart from the chickpeas - making them a delicious and healthy vegan or vegetarian lunch with no cooking required.
Put your tinned chickpeas, a small grated carrot, 1 tbsp tahini, 1 tbsp nut butter, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander, the juice of half a lemon and 2 crushed garlic cloves into your high-speed blender or food processor.
Pulse until all the ingredients are well combined. You might need to stop a few times to scrape down the sides.
Put the sesame seeds into a bowl.
With lightly oiled hands roll the mixture into 10 small balls.
Dip each ball into the sesame seeds and roll until coated.
Place in the fridge for an hour or in a dehydrator if you have one.
For the carrot salad
Meanwhile make the carrot salad.
Mix your grated carrot with the juice of half a lemon and ½ tsp black mustard seeds.
Serve your healthy carrot falafels with the carrot salad, salad leaves (I used spinach) and wraps.
