This is the name of the dish we have chosen for you; Baked falafel with sesame and tahin yoghurt
Hands up, where are the Falafelfans? If you’ve been vegan a bit longer, like us, you may have a very special relationship with Falafel.
Of course it is fantastic to look for a nice place in the sun with the sandwich and to snorkel, we eat a really nice Falafelbowl or a bulging Pita bag but also damn happy in peace and cozy on the sofa at home!
For those who have not yet dined on our fried original , today there is the even simpler and, above all, faster method: Delicious baked falafel from the oven.
Our falafel out of the oven can still hold up damn well. Both tasteful and visually. For the baked flash variant you just need to open a can of boiled organic chickpeas , for example from our friends at Bonduelle , add a few oatmeal and the typical spices like cumin, garlic and fresh parsley, the rest is done by the food processor.
Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner after the stressful working day, because in the end you only invest 10 minutes of work before the delicious balls go into the oven for half an hour. And when additional friends come over, you just double the amount! Oh silly, they’ll triple in a minute, that’ll be over.
And now off in the fluffy Pita pocket! In addition there’s delicious, quickly marinated cabbage salad, fresh cucumbers, onions, tomato and a refreshing Tahin joghurt with lemon and mint.
Total 40 minutes
