06 Oct Healthy Falafel and Tzatziki Recipe
Throughout our travels, we have fallen in love with all kinds of Middle Eastern, Balkan or Greek foods. These delicious chickpea balls are some of our favorite “lighter” meals. This is how Adam & Becca do them. You can easily substitute meats for falafel on a vegan diet; all those on The Vegan Body (Men) and The Vegan Body (Women) programs will know how much they love their chickpea recipes on their diet plan. In our case here, they’re simply combined with some homemade tzatziki for a vegetarian protein punch.
Nutrition Facts for 1 serving:
250 Calories 18g Protein 33g Carb 4g Fat
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
1 can drained chickpea
1 small onion – finely sliced
2 cloves garlic
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 egg white
Fresh lemon juice
Salt & pepper
170g fat-free plain Greek yogurt
20g finely sliced cucumber
Salt & pepper
To prepare the falafel, combine all the solid and liquid ingredients, including the drained chickpeas and spices, in a food processor bowl and blend until the desired consistency is achieved (chunky or smooth).
Form the mixture into evenly shaped balls.
Spray non-stick low calorie cooking spray to a pan and wait until it reaches medium heat.
When the pan is heated up place the falafel balls gently on the pan leaving some space between each to flip them properly.
When a crust forms around the outside of the balls, the falafel is ready to be served.
For the tzaziki, chop the cucumber and parsley into thin bits, add to the Greek yogurt and fold the solids in together with the pepper, garlic and some fresh lemon juice.
Serve the warm falafel balls with the Tzatziki dipping sauce and fresh side-salad.
“If you have some extra calories to spare, enjoy this dish with pita bread and additional toppings such as hummus, feta cheese, and olive oil”.
