Falafel is something that me and a few of my friends at work absolutely love but usually they are rather high in points so you end up with a measly lonely falafel and absolutely no satisfaction. Because of this I decided today to try adapt a recipe (original here) into a low point falafel recipe that would taste just as good and the result was amazing! This falafel can be served in a wrap with salad and extras (serving suggestions below and recipe here) or as part of a normal salad with lots of vegetables and leaves. It would also be great with my harissa roasted vegetable salad!
These little muffins are so quick and easy to make and are an ideal way to make lunchtime a bit more exciting. They have so much flavour for so little points and so provide a real sense of satisfaction when you’ve gobbled them up. The recipe I’ve created below is delicious but its also easily adapted so throw anything you fancy into your mixture (I’ve done chorizo and paprika, smoked salmon and chive and ham and mushroom too!). You can even pop in some breakfast ingredients to make a lovely quick brekkie or even have them as a snack on the go!
My lovely auntie informed me of this amazing recipe from the Facebook page recipe binder yesterday and whilst I usually like to create or adapt recipes (as you will see from all my other posts haha) this one was rather delicious as it was. I only made a few of my own amendments and this was mostly during the cooking and portioning process.
It was so quick to make, so tasty and for so little points! My OH really didn’t believe that they were WW friendly. Make sure your oven is hot when you pop your bhajis in as you don’t want them to go soggy. To store pop into a box on top of some strong kitchen roll (to soak up any excess liquid created when cooling). According to the recipe builder 1 bjahi is 1sp, 2 bhajis is 1sp, 4 is 2sp and 8 is 4sp.
