    Simple 4 Ingredient Plant-Based Falafels with Vegetable Curry

    Hi beautiful souls!

    In my recent vlog, I shared with you a simple and delicious plant-based lunch recipe, where I cooked up some amazing (and magical) wholesome falafels and a colourful vegetable curry. Here is the full recipe for you, which is great for any day of the week, and also for meal prepping too. All you need to do is make a big batch on one day, and place into lunch boxes to keep in the fridge for up to one week for a nourishing meal on-the-go.

    The best part about these falafels are that they are really versatile, meaning you can substitute some of these ingredients for what you prefer or have available (as listed in the recipe), and add in any spices/other ingredients you like. The main thing is to just create a mixture that is slightly thick and not too thin, so they bake well in shape (unless you don’t mind flat falafels šŸ™‚ ). As always, this meal is packed with essential nutrients for our mind, body and soul to thrive, containing plant-based sources of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. It is gluten and refined sugar free, but promises it will be enjoyed by everyone you share this with!

    I truly hope you enjoy this recipe, and if you do recreate it, I’d love to see your creations if you tag me on instagram šŸ™‚

    Take care always,

    Jasmine
