Easy vegan and gluten-free falafels

Easy vegan and gluten-free falafels

For a few days now, I’ve had falafels on my mind and being on a bit of a health kick I wanted to make easy vegan and gluten-free falafels.

The other day I had to run errands in Watford. I got there just before lunch and after my appointment, I took a little walk around the town center. I’ve been to Watford once before last year and back then the Intu shopping center was under construction and not the nicest. However, the renovations are now over and what a great area for shopping, walking around and getting your things done. I really like the town center especially the street market.

At one of the street market stalls, I saw a vegan label. It was a place that sold falafels. They had wraps, salads, and some more options. Now, I have to admit I can be a bit scared of buying food from street food seller. I tend to be a bit afraid of germs and lack of hygiene, thinking about a 60-minute bus ride home, I wasn’t really keen on having any digestion issues if you know what I mean. But, they looked nice and clean so I decided to have a falafel wrap.

Without a doubt, this wrap was one of the best I’ve ever tried. Firstly, it was filled with loads of veggies. Secondly, the falafels were very flavourful, soft and fluffy. And lastly, the hummus was great and the garlic tahini sauce something I will be dreaming about for quite a while.

I wanted to recreate the falafel wrap at home so I had my best go at the falafels. I decided to make a recipe for easy vegan and gluten-free falafels. They are actually quite easy to make, and pretty quick too. I just chucked everything in the food processor and let it do all the hard work for me.

Nothing feels more like summer than having a BBQ party. I love meeting up with friends, cooking great food on the barbeque and eating together and then maybe afterward enjoy playing board games into the night. I think this is one of the biggest things I miss about Iceland.

We have such good friends back there and long summer nights with friends are some of my happiest memories. The jokes, the laughs, the stories… and everything added to the big bank of memories.

Hopefully, we will soon be able to have similar parties here in London. In the meantime, we will still have our BBQ parties as a family of four.

I hope you will like the recipe as much as we did. We enjoyed the Oumph skewers two days in a row, first on their own with some potato salad and veggie skewers. And, on the second day, we had them with a giant bowl of salad with roasted sweet potato and a special green dressing.
