1 CUP cooked lentils
1 CUP steamed squash
2 CUPs chickpeas, soaked overnight (and /or sprouted for a day or 2), uncooked
1 CUP parsley and / or other herbs like basil, cilantro
4 or more garlic clove chopped
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Blend in a food processor / blender until it is combined and holds together but not so much that it becomes a hummus paste.
Fry in hot grapeseed oil (or other hot temperature oil) for approximately 5 minutes, until nicely browned. (Or bake in oven if you don’t feel like being decadent)
Makes approximately 33 + falafel depending on size, can be frozen. lay uncooked balls flat on a tray with parchment, place in freezer until frozen then transfer to bag for quick meal at later date.
I like to squish them flat to maximize the surface area, this ensure even cooking and also gets them nice and crispy
Delicious healthy food makes you feel good about life 🙂

Dragon Bowl Ingredients
Roast, steam or saute a bunch of rad veggies, don’t be shy, live it up! I roasted Yam, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Beet, and Squash cuz I was feeling ambitious today. (NOTE: broccoli and cauliflower only take half the time and also higher temperature so I roasted them for the last 25 minutes at 425 F, flipping once)
Sauteed cabbage tips and kale, adding 1/2 tsp of veggie boullion or to taste, and dash of water to mix it in. Turn off the burner then add spinach so nicely wilts from remaining heat. Feel free to omit this step just add fresh spinach.
For the noodles I diced fresh cucumber, spring onion, cilantro, tossing it with buckwheat soba noodles and dressing.
To assemble the final plate I put noodles in, placed greens in half the bowl, roasted veggies in other half, drizzled some more dressing on top, added pea shoots and BOOM! power meal. Leaves you full and feeling great for hours.
