Super spinach falafel bowls

Super spinach falafel bowls are coming to my rescue this week. It has been a week post vacation and while winter is in full swing I haven’t gotten the hang of the cold just yet. Neither has my son, and he is not a happy camper when the flu bug has gotten a hold of him. This ever so nourishing bowl was absolutely delish and I have fallen in love with these super easy falafels.

Super spinach falafel bowls are coming to my rescue this week. It has been a week post vacation and while winter is in full swing I haven’t gotten the hang of the cold just yet. Neither has my son, and he is not a happy camper when the flu bug has gotten a hold of him. This ever so nourishing bowl was absolutely delish and I have fallen in love with these super easy falafels.

They are doughy yet light and airy thanks to the almond flour. The spinach doesn’t only add a color boost but a nutritional boost that is ever so necessary right now. Like I have said in my previous post, France is in strike and boy, do they know how to strike. I have been house hidden for the past week, and I just want things to go back to normal just like my health thank you very much!

So spoiler alert, black Friday is a no go, so I have to sit at home all day Friday on my own, while my son is going to school. Crazy right, these strikes are pretty horrendous just for that very fact. I am all for solidarity, but taking a shopping day away from a very necessary mom is just sad. Here I am complaining with the golden spoon in my mouth.

Haha, lol, just kidding. I don’t even really know what it’s all about, but I am kind of sad I am missing all the shopping fun. Me and a whole lot of people. I reckon this weekend is going to be even worse so I am staying away from all main roads and public roundabouts. Lucky me, I have a stash of these in the freezer and a whole lot of veg for the roasting.

Super spinach falafel bowls

Super spinach falafels

Ingredients 

  • 260g canned chickpeas drained
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup red onion sauteed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4- 1/3 cup almond milk

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celcius.
  2. Drain the chickpeas, but leave a little bit of the fluid behind.
  3. Add the spinach, onion and then add half of the oats and almond flour, blend until smooth and then add the rest of the ingredients, except the almond milk.
  4. If the consistency is good enough, then don’t add the milk (depending on what kind of blender you are using).
  5. I used a Nutri bullet hence the almond milk, shape into balls by using two tablespoons or an ice cream scoop.
  6. Place scoops on to a parchment paper lined try and bake for 15-20 minutes until brown.
  7. Leave to cool before using for the salad, these falafels freeze really well too.

Notes:

  • I served these falafels with some mini sumac & honey roasted carrots, pomegranate seeds and salted almonds.
  • I love the leave out a few chickpeas and add them to the dough after the blending, they give a little texture in every bite.
  • You can sub the spinach for kale.

You’ll also love these sweet potato falafels and these quick baked falafels. 

Hope you’ll give this recipe a try! I surely love them already**
