    Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes - Free delivery to Australia

    I've said previously that going Vegetarian or Vegan is a great way to save money and turns out be healthier too, I've gone completely Vegan as a protest about farmers insisting on Badger killing in the UK (where I'm currently living) the killing is costing so much and has been proven to have no effect! The money would be better spent on creating a vaccine for both cattle and badgers. I recently got chatting on twitter with a few nice people about this and they asked for the recipe that my wife makes for Baked Falafel (plus hummus recipe), turns out it's from a vegan cookbook that she got

    Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes - Free delivery to Australia (worldwide actually).

    Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes (Da Capo Press) : Paperback : Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Matthew Ruscigno : 9781600940491

    All measurements are American.

    Falafel (makes 12)

    Ingredients

    1 (15 oz) can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    2 cloves of garlic
    Half a small white onion, chopped (about 3 tablespoons)
    Half a cup of loosely packed fresh parsley leaves
    2 teaspoons od olive oil
    2 teaspoons hot sauce
    3 to 4 tablespoons chickpea or plain flour
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground coriander
    half a teaspoon paprika
    half a teaspoon baking powder
    quarter teaspoon salt
    several pinches of freshly ground black pepper

    Method

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    Pulse the chickpeas and garlic in a food processor. Add the onion, parsley, olive oil and hot sauce and blend until relatively smooth.

    Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl. Mix in tablespoons of flour, cumin, coriander, paprika, baking powder, salt and pepper. The mixture should be mushy, but fir enough to shape into balls. If it doesn't seem firm enough, add another tablespoon of flour.

    Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Form the mixture into walnut-sized balls, then flatten a bit into patties. Place on the baking sheet. Bake for 16-18 minutes; they should be browned on the underside. Remove the falafel from the oven, spray with a little more cooking spray, flip the falafel and bake for 8-10 more minutes.

    They're now ready to serve! Try them with some hummus (recipe below...)

    Hummus

    Ingredients

    1 (15 oz) can of chickpeas
    2 cloves of garlic
    1 tablespoon of olive oil
    2 tablespoons of lemon juice
    quarter teaspoon of salt
    half teaspoon of paprika (optional)

    Method

    When you open the can of chickpeas, pour about 3 tablespoons of the liquid into a cup and set aside. Drain the rest of the liquid and rinse the chickpeas. Pulse them in a food processor along with the garlic till no whole chickpeas are left. Add the olive oil and lemon juice and puree for a bit. Add 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid, the salt and paprika, if using. Blend until very smooth, adding the last tablespoon of liquid if needed. Scrape down the sides of the food processor with a spatula to make sure you get everything. Taste for salt and lemon juice. You can serve immediately, or chill.

    These recipes were taken from the book 'Appetite for Reduction' by Isa Chandra Moscowitz, and can be found here:
