It reckon about 80% of my diet consists of Sweet Potato these days…
To the extent that I even started to incorporate them in my falafels.
… Which is a darn delight, if I may say so. Let’s skip the sweet (potato) talk get straight to it!
→ 1 sweet potato, baked until soft
→ 1 can of chickpeas
→ 2-3 cloves of garlic
→ 1 red onion
→ 2 tbsp ground coriander
→ 1 tbsp ground cummin
→ a few dashes of cayenne pepper
→ salt + pepper
→ sesame seeds, to garnish (opt.)
1. Start oven at 175°C.
2. Place all the ingredients together in a food processor and mix until combined.
3. Scoop up about 2 tbsp of the paste and roll into balls. Roll in sesame seeds, if using. Place balls on a tray with a baking sheet.
4. Bake for about 35-40 minutes and leave to cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
Not the most photogenic of dishes (call for a #allfalafelsarebeautiful-hashtag?) but so delish!
