Beetroot falafels

Recettes de falafels à la betterave

You know if you follow me for a while, I sometimes tend to be a little mono-manic lol of the blow after my Gâteaux Piment, I had an irrepressible desire to make falafels ^ ^ It had been a while I wanted to do it again and as I had not yet published the recipe on the blog, it was the perfect opportunity!

Préparation de falafels à la betterave

Well, as I can not manage to follow a recipe, the traditional recipe was somewhat shaken by the fact that I had two beets that made gray mine in my vegetable tray ^^ Result: Very girly falafels with the light sweet flavor of beets that have tasted great at home!

I realized the recipe with my faithful Cook Processor from Kitchen Aid that was perfect to grate the beets and mix the chickpea preparation! To serve, I made a simple tahini sauce based on sesame paste and lemon juice.
