IMG_20170718_194040

Emily is obsessed with making lists and quizzes at the moment.  What is your favourite colour? What’s your favourite shape? What is your favourite food?

She gets annoyed I can’t say one favourite food.

But Falafels would definitely be up there. This is a sunshine food and I hope we get some more sunshine soon!

Assembly

  1. Spread hummus over a falafel, scatter over freshly grated carrot.
  2. Add the falafels , scatter with the pomegranate granita
  3. Drizzle over some plain yogurt

Falafels

Enough for 4 people

I make these with a mix of bulgar wheat and chick peas
It makes them light and crumbly as I don’t like a chewy falafel
They are baked not fried

300g of tinned chick peas
100g of bulgar wheat soaked
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp of ground coriander
1 tsp of fresh or dried parsley
1 pinch of salt

  1. Mix together the ingredients form into small balls
  2. Brush with sunflower oil refrigerated for 30 minutes
  3. Place under a hot grill for 15 minutes

Hummus

1 300g tin of chick peas
½ garlic clove
juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp of tahini
6 tbsp of olive oil or rapeseed oil

Blend together all the ingredients in the food processor.

¼ preserved lemon finely chopped
1 handful black olives finely slice
1 handful of fresh parsley finely chopped
