Sweet potato falafel
I love falafel it is so tasty with the spices but also very filling as they are made from chickpeas. I decided to make my own and love sweet potato so combined them into sweet potato falafel.
First put the swecet potato in the food processor cut into chunks, then at the chickpeas and onion. Then add the spices and flour. Then mould then into balls.
Place on a baking tray and place in the oven at 220” for 20 - 30 mins. I then served them with my homemade slaw. I don’t like mayo and coleslaw is very high in cals as well so I like to make my own as it’s kore colourful and crunchy.
This deslicious slaw is made with:
4 carrots grated
1 red onion sliced thinly
half a red cabbage finely sliced
cheese cheddar or Parmesan grated
add some spinach, kale or rocket sliced up
add aome nuts for added protein and omega 3
crush or slice some almonds and roasted pumpkin seeds and scatter over the top
you can also add avocado for more omega3
I sometimes add some brocolli finely chopped
for the dressing:
olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, apple cider vinegar and some natural yogurt
To serve then put them into pitta bread, wraps or flat bread along with the slaw and top with some Natural Greek yogurt.
