I just realised – I didn’t update you on the Awards Ceremony!! Friends, I won the award for Best Original Photography!! Thank you for everyone who left me the kindest comments! You can check out the post about it on my Instagram page here.
Just like that, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. Now, I don’t usually do anything on the blog for Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to switch that up a bit this year. We’re going to be celebrating Valentine’s Day here in California (fun!!) and all the pink is out and about. So why not bring some pink love to the blog?!
Guess what?! This Beet Falafel recipe is straight from my ebook, It’s That Easy! If you don’t know, I wrote an ebook that speaks about how easy it is to transition to a meatless lifestyle that you’ll love! It’s an almost 150 page guide, loaded with brand new recipes, and a 4 week meal prep guide! Firstly, thank you to everyone who has purchased it! A lot of you have been asking for a preview before buying. I thought it would be really nice to not only share a recipe, but one that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!!
It’s been a while and I’ve been waiting to make this Beet Falafel recipe again. I love eating falafel, I mean – who doesn’t? I love all the different varieties out there, and this is no exception. Now, this isn’t your traditional falafel, and that’s okay. I mean, look at that colour! It’s baked instead of fried. It still has that absolutely perfect falafel texture. The flavour is phenomenal. It has all the favourites of falafel – chickpeas, parsley, ground coriander and cumin, with the addition of a roasted beet. The roasted beet not only adds that colour but adds a smoothness to the falafel. It actually doesn’t taste like beet at all, thanks to the typical falafel ingredients, but really ups the nutrition and of course, makes it ten times prettier!
I went all out and made it into a divine falafel wrap – complete with tomatoes, lettuce and one of my favourite dips/spreads/sauces ever – a Harissa Tahini Dip. This means you’re getting not one, but TWO different recipes from the ebook! Also because of its gorgeous pink colour, making this for Valentine’s Day almost seems like destiny!
Remember that you can check out the rest of my ebook with has even more never been seen recipes on the blog! Enjoy and eat up friends!
