Baked Falafels in a Zoodle & Carrot Nest


Kick off Mondays with this delicious meat-free dish. I made a batch of these, they are very  handy to store in the fridge or lunch box and heat when the hunger strikes.  Falafels contain a nice variety of vegetables like chickpeas and sweet potatoes, to help you achieve and eat a healthy diet. Added to the dish is zoodles (zucchini spiralized), cherry tomatoes, coriander, shredded carrots and avocado. Sprinkled with sesame seeds, lime juice and chilli flakes.

* TIP: for convenience I buy the shredded carrots, white cabbage and purple cabbage mixes in the supermarket to make salads. They are very handy and quick , plus boost your plant intake.


1 tin Chickpeas (drained)

1 Extra Large Sweet Potatoe

1/2 tsp. Turmeric,

2 Garlic Cloves,

1 tsp. Cumin, pinch Chilli Flakes, 1 tsp. Coriander Powder, 1 tsp. Tamari Sauce

pinch of Salt & Pepper.

1. Peel and boil sweet potatoe, until soft.
2. Pop sweet potatoe, chickpeas, garlic, cumin, chili, coriander, tamari, salt & pepper. Blitz until smooth mixture is formed.
3. Roll the mixture into 4 burger patty shapes , sprinkle on black & white sesame seeds.
4. Pop on a tray & bake until golden brown. I baked for 25 minutes at 180 degrees, or if you want a crispy exterior leave for another 5 minutes.
