Herby Baked Butter Bean Falafel

10 balls
30 min

These hit just the right spot at lunchtime. I have just arrived back from 2 weeks of travelling, eating amazing food – lots of treats and often zero fruit and vegetables the whole day. On my first lunch back I was craving something wholesome and easy, with the limited fresh ingredients. Along came this idea – some falafels using the odd-and-ends of herbs I had in the Fridge and a tin of Butter Beans in the cupboard. I have liked to bake falafels recipes since I find that it gives a great crust without having too add too much oil, and also they don’t fall apart as you try and flip in the frying pan!

Vegan, Gluten Free, Diary Free, Affordable and Nutricious! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
