I love falafels and I love words. So, being a pretty curious human, I did a bit of research into what falafel actually means. Turns out it comes from the Aramaic (a language spoken in the Middle East) word, ‘pilpāl’, meaning ‘small round thing’. How cute!
I also love turmeric so, it seemed only natural to make turmeric falafel.
Adding a pinch of turmeric to foods is a simple way to add colour and flavour to meals and will totally transform dish (check out my Golden Eggs). It’s also one of the most well researched spices and has been found to help everything from easing insomnia and depression to preventing Alzheimer’s and certain cancers.
These falafel are so simple to make – just whizz everything in a blender and bake them until golden and crispy. Serve them with a simple leafy salad, a flatbread, and a good drizzle of Lemon Tahini Dressing and you’ve got yourself a delicious lunch!
I hope you LOVE this salad as much as I do. It is:
