Friday – Food

 

Every Friday I’ll be posting up a recipe that I’ve incorporated into my nutrition plan while I’m Marathon training.
 FALAFEL BURGERS
INGREDIENTS
400g can chickpea (rinsed and drained)
garlic clove (chopped)
Handful of flat-leaf  or curly parsley
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp harissa paste or chilli powder
1 small red onion (roughly chopped)
2 tbsp. plain flour
2 tbsp. sunflower oil
toasted pitta bread
200g tub tomato salsa (to serve)
green salad (to serve)
COOKING
Pat the chickpeas dry with kitchen paper. Tip into a food processor along with the onion, garlic, parsley, spices, flour and a little salt. Blend until fairly smooth, then shape into four patties with your hands.

Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the burgers, then quickly fry for 3 minutes on each side until lightly golden. Serve with toasted pittas, tomato salsa and green salad.

    1. It’s a pleasure. It was nice. Made six patties in total. But I tried one without the salsa at first and it was a little dry. Definitely needs something moist to accompany it.
