Easy Vegan Falafel Bowl

Don’t be fooled, this rainbow bowl is not only eye-pleasing, it’s also very tasty and satisfying! I still need to brush up my falafel skills, so the ones I used in the recipe are not homemade. However if you’re lucky enough, you’ll be able to find delicious ones at your supermarket. I bought mine from the brand Yves and wow, they did not disappoint.

Last time I made falafel myself, I almost set the fire alarm, everything was burning and our apartment smelt like barbecue for a week. Will get there, I promise you though.

Also, I bought my first spiralizer to make zoodles, yeah! I tried with a mandolin a few month ago and cut a piece of my thumb. Cooking can be really dangerous! These falafel bowls are the perfect summer lunch and don’t underestimate the power of a homemade vinaigrette, it makes a world of a difference!

Ingredients:

Lime Dressing:

– 1 tsp. whole grain mustard

– 2 tsp. white vinegar

Salad Bowl:

– 2 cups fresh sprouts

– 200g cherry tomatoes

– 2 zucchini

– a handful fresh basil leaves

 

Directions:

Shred the red cabbage with a knife.

Peel the avocados and remove the stones.

Slice them finely and build a rose by fanning out the slices into a curve and rolling them up.

Wash the cherry tomatoes.

With the help of a spiralizer, cut the zucchini into zoodles.

Heat up a pan and sauté the falafel until golden brown.

For the vinaigrette, pour the mustard and white vinegar in a bowl, mix until combined.

Incorporate olive oil by stirring constantly.

Divide the veggies into 4 plates and serve salad dressing aside.
