baked chard falafel wraps
Just like the traditional falafels, except these are wrapped in greens.
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup corn flour
1/3 cup quinoa flakes
2 tbsp. dried tomatoes (finely chopped)
1 onion finely chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 tsp. coriander powder
1 tsp. cumin powder
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika powder
1 tsp. sea salt
1 1/4- 1 1/2 cups hot water
large bunch of fresh chard
optional 1 inch piece of fresh turmeric grated and 1/4 tsp. cayenne powder
Gently rinse the chard, then cut off the hard stems using a knife or scissors.
Combine all the ingredients except for the water and chard in a large mixing bowl. Add the hot water and mix well. Let the mixture soak for 5 minutes.
Wrap 1-2 tbsp. of the falafel dough in the chard leaves. The dough makes 6-7 wraps.
Place the wraps in an oven safe dish and cover with a lid or foil.
Bake for 25 minutes with the lid, then remove lid and continue baking for another 5 minutes.
Enjoy plain, with salad or plant based yoghurt!
