Superfood Spinach Falafels

Buckwheat flour! Great idea! Remember if you do make this at home, falafel can be baked too and if you don’t have a blender, use a fork and leave it chunky!

Falafels are great with hummus and tabbouleh! Falafels are great with hummus and tabbouleh!

Ingredients
4 cups spinach
3 cloves garlic
400g chickpeas
2tbsp tahini
1tsp cumin
Juice of half a lemon
4tbsp buckwheat or brown rice flour
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Directions
Steam the spinach until soft then blend all ingredients until almost smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then, about a tablespoon full at a time, fry the mixture on a medium heat with a dash of olive oil- I did 4-6 at a time, make sure they don’t touch when cooking. Flip when browned, but make sure they have enough time to cook all the way through- around 3-4 minutes. Enjoy in a pita, as part of a mezze platter or in a salad. The felafels will store for a few days in an airtight container in the fridge. Enjoy!
