Falafels are a great meal prep idea. These vegetarian patties are loaded with flavour!
Soak dry chickpeas over night (8 hours). Rinse and then boil chickpeas for 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Once complete, drain chickpeas and allow time to cool (20 minutes). Add 2 cups of chickpeas into a food processor/Vitamix, along with chopped garlic, tahini, spinach, fresh lemon juice, cumin, salt, pepper, olive oil and quinoa flakes. Blend on high speed until paste like consistency forms. Once paste is made, scoop out mixture into large mixing bowl. Line a cooking tray with wax paper, and carefully scoop out falafel mixture into balls, flattening them with your hands.
Pairs great on top of vegetables with hummus dip!
