TRY THESE: BEAT THE BLOAT BAKED PUMPKIN FALAFEL

Our very talented friend Jo Harding has yet again created a mouth-watering creation with her Beat The Bloat Baked Pumpkin Falafel. So delicious and easy to make - make sure you give them a try!
INGREDIENTS
400 g Pumpkin
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of Pink Himalayan or sea salt
3 garlic cloves1
small red onion (35g)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/3 tsp paprika
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp lemon zest
45 g coconut flour
1.5 tbsp tahini
15 g fresh coriander
Pinch of cracked black pepper
3 tbsp sesame seeds
METHOD
  1.  Preheat the oven to 200C (fan assisted.)
  2. Remove the seeds from the pumpkin and chop into chunks (about 2cm in diameter.)
  3. Place the pumpkin on a non stick baking tray. Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes until soft and golden.
  4. After 15 minutes add the garlic for the remaining 10 minutes. Once cooked remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  5. Remove the skin from the onion and chop fine. Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan. On a low / medium heat fry the onion for 2 -3 minutes until soft. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  6. Place the pumpkin, onion, garlic (minus skins), cumin, coriander, paprika, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, zest, coconut flour, tahini, 1/2 of the finely chopped coriander and pinch of salt and pepper in a food processor like a Magimix.
  7. Blitz until almost smooth. You might need to scrape the sides with a spatula and blitz a few times. Empty the mix into a bowl and fold in the remaining chopped coriander.
  8. Using your hands, shape into falafel sized balls, about 2 cm in diameter.
  9. Roll in sesame seeds and place on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper. Brush with a little olive oil and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until golden.
