Happy Sunday! Urgh now that I am back at uni I can see why people think the weekend comes to an end so soon. After my brother got to my place early yesterday meaning I had to be up early too, today was definitely a monster lie in day after a full week of no lie ins for me. This has been unheard of for like 5 months now in my world!
Anywaaaay. Today as promised I have a nice little recipe for you! After my first day on Monday, I suddenly felt inspired to get creative in the kitchen. Maybe going back to uni is good for me hey?! I had no plans of what to make really. I did have in mind something sweet but then umm things just kind of changed as I threw things into my food processor and it turned out savoury! It was probably the taste of the roasted bombay chickpeas I’d just had as the recipe turned out to have curry powder in…an ingredient that I actually use pretty much everyday!
Crunchy Curried Red Lentil Falafel (Vegan, Gluten Free)
Ingredients (serves 1 – makes 10 small falafels)
1/2 cup dried red lentils
1 tbsp coconut flour
1/8 cup almonds
½ tbsp curry powder
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup + 1tbsp water
Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees Celcius. Put the dry ingredients into the food processor and grind until combined. Add the water and mix until you get a falafel dough. Line a tray and roll the dough into equal sized falafel balls. Bake for 10-15 minutes until they are crispy.
These were perfect for my lunch the next day with some hummus as dip with my salad. You could also serve with pitta, with yogurt dip or they’d be great as a savoury snack If you are wanting a soft falafel then these aren’t – they are crunchy from the almonds which personally, I love as I love a good crunch with anything!
I made some more of these today for uni tomorrow so I’m already excited for my lunch tomorrow haha! Also yesterday I received another Nutribox as I won their competition so I have plenty of snacks to keep me going this week for my long days woohh!
Think I’m going to take in my personal faves tomorrow to make Monday extra yummy to cheer me up. I absolutely love the Miss Wallflower Candy energy cookies, Bounce Spirulina ball and Beond acai berry ball <3
And speaking of snacks, I may have made a little *ahem..* order of inSpiral kale chips to really cheer me up weeee!!!!
Ah well, at least my food will be exciting this week even if my work isn’t
Do you like falafel? How do you eat them?
