We love these Green Falafel Healthy Wraps from Delectable Reveries. And of course, since we are all about eating and living healthy this week with #EatEffect, we thought of bringing you this delectable recipe.

First Things First

Falafel is usually made with chickpeas and/or fave beans and fried into round balls or patties. They are served with pita bread or any flat bread, and hummus or tahini-based sauces.

I make my own version of falafel – with green lentils instead and adding other nutrient dense ingredients. I don’t know if we can even call this a falafel or it is simply a burger or patties. Whatever the name, I hope you’ll make them and enjoy them.

Elements:

2 cups cooked green lentils

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup chickpea flour/gram flour

1/4 cup lemon juice

3 cloves of garlic

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp cumin powder

1/4 tsp nutmeg powder

1/4 tsp cardamon powder

1 cup fresh cilantro

1/2 cup fresh mint

1 tsp sea salt or more to taste

1/4 cup flax seeds

2 tbs sesame seeds

 Formula:

Process all in above ingredients apart from flax and sesame seeds in a food processor till well combined and coarsely smooth.Add the flax and sesame seeds and pulse a couple of times.

Add the flax and sesame seeds and pulse a couple of times.

Spray Olive oil on a baking tray and drop dollops of the falafel mixture then flatten a little.

Spray the top surface of the falafels with some olive oil too.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350F / 180C for 12 to 15 minutes, then turn them over and bake for another 12 to 15 minutes.

These falafels are slightly crispy on the outside and soft inside.

I used Romaine lettuce as a wrap and served the falafels with avocado, sprouts, fresh mint and a yummy sauce.

Elements:

1 tbs almond butter

1 tsp tahini

juice of half lemon

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp agave

sea salt + black pepper

water

Blend it all together, taste, adjust, add more or not, be done. Enjoy!
