Baked Quinoa Chickpea Falafel – Holistic Fashionista recipe feature

I’ve teamed up with Holistic Fashionista, to share more of my plant based, healthy recipes with you. Here’s my first recipe featuring Baked Quinoa Chickpea Falafel.

Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, falafel is my all-time favorite savory food. I tend to order it in restaurants very often, but making your own at home is just as easy and delicious. Bake a batch in the weekend and you got your next week’s lunches sorted out.

Quinoa makes this falafel a complete protein source with all the essential amino acids. Chickpeas are especially high in iron, which many young women lack. Baked falafel is also lower in fat, making it more heart-healthy than when fried.

This 10-ingredient recipe is super simple, yet tasty. Whip it up in a food processor or blender and bake in the oven, for a heavenly outcome. Serve atop a bed of greens for light lunch or cooked veggies and grains for more filling dinner, top with a dollop of hummus or tzatziki and enjoy!
