A random lone beetroot I had lurking in the fridge this week turned regular falafel into something altogether more vibrant. This is a really quick and easy recipe which you could also try with sweet potato, squash or any other earthy root vegetables. I wish I’d taken more pictures, I wasn’t planning a recipe for the blog but they turned out so well I wanted to share.
I served the falafel with a simple grated carrot salad seasoned with sesame oil and sumac and a bit of leftover kale salad I had in the fridge.
I hope you try these at home, I’ll be adding them to my healthy party foods list!
Beetroot is high in antioxidants, aids liver detoxification and may contribute to lowering cholesterol. It can be roasted or eaten raw in salads and makes a delicious stamina enhancing juice.
