Falafel

Hello! I’ve been trying to perfect a falafel recipe for a while now, and I think I’ve got it. These discs of baked chickpea deliciousness are full of flavour and are great in bowls and wraps. You probably already have all of the ingredients at home, so they’re great for when you have no idea what to make. Enjoy!

Falafel

Serves: Makes 15 falafel

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 a small onion, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbs oats
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Toss all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and combine until smooth.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Scoop out tablespoons of the falafel mixture and roll between your hands to create 15 evenly sized balls. Place them onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake the falafel for 5 minutes, then remove from the oven and use a spatula to flatten out the balls, creating discs.
  5. Place the sheet back into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, then flip the discs and bake the other side for an additional 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the falafel from the oven and enjoy!!

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! Falafel is the best;)

Red Bean Burritos

Hey guys! I’m back from a bit of a lull in my posting schedule with these Red Bean Burritos. They’re full to bursting with delicious ingredients (and a lot of cilantro) to bring a ray of sunshine to your drab winter lunches! I made the filling with red kidney beans, but black beans work just as well. Top these suckers with tons of guacamole and salsa and you’ve got a fiesta in your mouth! Here’s the recipe;)

Red Bean Burritos

Serves: 2-3

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 can red kidney beans
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tbs cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2/3 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 a tomato, diced
  • 1/2 a small onion, diced
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • A handful of fresh cilantro leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pita and salsa and guacamole for serving

Directions:

  1. In a pan over the medium heat, stir together the beans, water, and spices. Let simmer for about 2-5 minutes, until most of the liquid is gone and the mixture has thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix together the quinoa, tomato, onion, cilantro and lemon juice.
  3. Warm up a wrap or pita and scoop some of the quinoa mixture, beans, salsa and guacamole into it. Wrap it up and enjoy!

*this recipe can also be enjoyed as a bowl- just omit the wrap and use more quinoa!

Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Apple Pie

Hi guys! There’s nothing better to end off the week than a nice slice of Apple Pie, and that’s just what I made today. This Pie has a super easy to make crust, a delicious, cinnamony filling, and is no bake!!! There’s no refined sugar in it either, and is healthy so you can feel good about eating it. Don’t get me wrong though; this Pie is SUPER tasty, especially when it comes to the filling. Hope you enjoy!!

Apple Pie

Serves: Makes 1 9-inch pie

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup water

For the filling:

  • 3 medium apples, diced
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbs vanilla
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbs oat flour

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the crust ingredients until a dough forms. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate, taking a little bit out if the crust is too thick. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 15 minutes, then place in the fridge.
  2. In a pot, add in the apples, cinnamon, vanilla and water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Let the filling cook for 10-15 minutes until the apples are soft and any remaining liquid is syrupy. Add in the oat flour and cook for another 2 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  3. Let the filling cool, then spread it in an even layer on the crust. Cover with plastic wrap again and place in the fridge to cool completely before eating.
  4. Enjoy!

This Pie is just what you need to snuggle up by the fire with on those cold winter nights;) Have a great weekend everyone!
