This recipe is part of our 5 Ingredients only range and what a winner it is! We’ve had some awesome feedback on not only how easy this is to make, but how tasty it is. Clearly it’s a winner, but then surely anything that is as simple as only 5 ingredients has to be! We love quick and simple food.

Sometimes recipes don’t have to be complicated to be tasty. When we don’t have time, these falafels can be great. Especially because of the high lentil content. These are great sources of Protein & Fibre packed with all sorts of goodness!

BENEFITS OF FIBRE

Fibre is an essential part of any diet, but so often forgotten about. For a healthy gut the recommended dose of fibre is around 30g a day. How many grams do you think you’re eating? Well this recipe is hear to help as cooked lentils offer around 7.8g/half a cup. As a reference a bowl of branflakes offers around 3.7g per serving, so hit those lentils! If you’re going to up your fibre intake, do it gradually. Whilst it is great for the gut, it can cause gas if you up your intake too quickly.

🥔INGREDIENTS🥔

  • 2 cups (400g) lentils, cooked
  • 1 cup (60g) fresh parsley • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • * 1 1⁄2 tbsp. olive oil
  • * 1 tsp. salt

METHOD
👉Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Pulse all the ingredients (except the flour) in a food processor until well combined. The mixture should look like semi-dry crumbs and should hold together when pressed
 
👉Stir in the flour, and then form the mixture into patties, using a large tablespoon of mixture for each falafel. Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes

👉Serve warm or cold in salads, sandwiches, poke bowls, with dips. The falafels can be stored in the refrigerated for 2-3 days.
