Clean Falafel’s

You could make a thousand puns about this food, but in all seriousness these bad boys below are protein packed and super delicious

These chickpea delights are perfect as a snack for the 3pm pick me up, or accompanied with a salad for a fulfilling and healthy lunch option

The best part about this recipe is that it only takes one chopping board, one food processor and your oven. That’s it!
Oh so simple, so if you have 30 minutes to spare you can whip these up and be munching them down in no time.

What You Need.
1 can Chickpeas
1 Onion
1 Egg
2 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 Bunch of Fresh Parsley
1 to  1-1/2 cups Almond Meal
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds (optional)
2 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp ground Coriander
1 tsp Salt

What You Do.
Preheat your oven at 180 and line a medium sized tray with baking paper.
On a chopping board, peel and chop the onion, parsley and garlic.
In your food processor place in your chopped garlic, parsley and onion, along with the remaining ingredients. Keep aside your almond meal for the moment.
Blend on high until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
Scrape down the sides and blend again on a slow setting, slowly add in your almond meal until your mixture begins to thicken and stick together.
Continue until the consistency allows you to portion out a piece and easily roll into a small ball.
Place each ball on your lined baking tray and gently press down to flatten each one
Pop your tray in the oven for roughly 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown,
Take out f the oven and let the falafels cool slightly prior to serving.

I topped mine with some Greek yoghurt and herbs of choice (pictured above)
