  • You participated in the 1st edition of The Glow Club events and prepared home made vegan & delicious dishes. Could you give away one the recipes you created?

Falafel is a dish loved by many for its great taste as well as versatility. I love that you can enjoy falafels cold or warm at any time of the year. Falafels can eaten as a main meal with cooked veggies as well as a snack with a fresh zingy salad. It is a simple dish to make & since uncooked falafels can be frozen to enjoy later, they are a great time saver. I want to share this dish as an example of simple yet nutritionally rich vegan dish. Its main ingredient chickpeas are packed with protein & the fresh herbs add the array of vitamins & minerals. 

  • Ingredients for 15 falafels:

250g dried chickpeas, 2 garlic cloves crushed, 25g parsley roughly chopped, 15g mint leaves roughly chopped, 2 medium onions finely chopped, 1 tsp chili flakes (optional), 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp coriander seeds crushed, 3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 1 tbsp sesame seeds, 1 tsp salt, Sunflower Oil. 

  • Instructions: 

Place the chickpeas in a large bowl & cover with at least twice of cold water. Soak overnight. Drain the chickpeas. Put garlic, parsley, coriander, mint & onion into blender. Mix until the paste is damp & slightly mashy. Add cumin, chili flakes & salt. Using your hands, combine & make 15 falafels, about 2 tbs of mixture for each. Put Sunflower Oil into a deep pan & heat until medium high. Fry each falafel on each side for 2 mins. Total cooking time is 5 mins. Place on kitchen paper to drain the oil. Serve immediately. You can freeze uncooked falafels & fry them just before serving.
