lunch idea


Let’s be real: what prompted me to make falafel at home is the sandwich I tasted at the Panthere Verte restaurant. I can eat in this restaurant every day, I will not get tired of it! Instead of spending all my money there, I thought it would be nice if I could reproduce a healthy version to their falafels. Here is my recipe:

You’ll need:
6 cloves garlic peeled,
1 can chickpeas rinsed (15 ounce)
1 ½ cup of parsley leaves,
1 cup of fresh cilantro leaves,
½ cup diced onion,
1/3 cup whole wheat flour,
1 tbsp lemon juice,
1 ½ tsp baking powder,
1 ½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp ground cumin,
½ tsp black pepper
Olive oil

It’s simple: you put everything (except the oil) in the mixer and you mix! Put the mixture in a bowl that you cover with plasticized paper and leave to rest in the fridge for 2 hours.

On parchment paper, form small balls that you crush to form small disks (see photos). Meanwhile, heat the oil and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Let’s say it: fried falafels are delicious but I opted for the healthier option.

Allow to cool on absorbent paper before eating.

Enjoy your falafels with humus, a fresh salad of cucumber tomatoes onions or in a sandwich.

One of my resolutions is to eat healthier. I also decided to share with you even more recipes on the blog, this section that I have neglected a bit these past months. I have already prepared many easy and quick meals that would make a great healthy lunch or nice breakfasts. I have also developed an obsession for bowls. We can find an infinite number of models and we can garnish them whichever way we want, including leftovers. It is a healthy, simple and sain way to eat.
Here, I added: sautéed portobello mushrooms (garlic, salt and pepper), grated carrots, coriander, quinoa, avocado and chickpeas. For the chickpeas, I seasoned them (cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, olive oil) and baked them in the oven.
For the vinaigrette, I always make a new one. Here, I made it with tahini, lemon juice, salt, pepper, 1 tbsp of yogurt and water for the consistency. I also added a little bit of sumac on top.
What type of recipes would you like to see on the blog: something healthy or something comforting such as dessert?
