Organic Falafel with Mighty Moringa

January 26, 2018 in Eat Local & Organic

Everyone loves Falafel.  This subtle, delicately spiced, middle eastern  snack is an eternal hit with meat-eaters, veggies and vegans alike, but the typical, deep-fried variety bought in shops and restaurants aren’t the healthiest. Falafel are easy to make. So how about making your own, and transforming them into a powerhouse of super nutrition? These simple, homemade falafel are still crispy and delicious but are baked instead of fried and include green leaf moringa for a dash of super green power!

Recipe from: www.aduna.com


2 tsp Aduna Moringa Superleaf Powder

3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp dried chickpeas, soaked overnight OR

1 can of chickpeas, drained & rinsed

2 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped

1/4 of a red onion, roughly chopped (approx. 1/2 cup)

1/4 cup coriander

1/4 cup parsley

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp baking powder

2 Tbsp chickpea flour or plain flour

3/4 tsp salt


Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse 15-20 times, until the chickpeas are chopped and the ingredients are fully mixed. The mixture should form a ball when you squeeze it in your hand.

Roll the mixture into large balls, place on the prepared baking sheet and gently flatten into patties approx. 1/2 an inch thick. Brush with a little olive oil and bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through baking time.

Serve in a pita with hummus or as an accompaniment to a meal.
