PREP TIME: 30 min

COOKING TIME: 1 hour 40 min



½ cup quinoa, rinsed
1 cup (250ml) vegetable stock
1 tablespoon mint leaves, roughly chopped
1 Lebanese cucumber, diced
2 cups baby spinach,
1 medium beetroot, peeled and gated
½ punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup sauerkraut, drained


450g Spud Lite potatoes
½ x 400g tin chickpeas, drained & rinsed
1 small carrot, peeled & finely grated
1 small red onion, peeled and finely diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
½ long red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves
¼ cup (35g) sesame seeds

Tahini sauce
½ cup natural vegan almond yogurt
2 tablespoons tahini 
1 clove garlic, crushed

Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced) and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Place whole potatoes into preheated oven and bake for 1 hour or until cooked through. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly before removing skins and placing flesh in a medium mixing bowl.

Place chickpeas in a food processor and process until finely chopped.

Add chopped chickpeas, carrot, onion, garlic, chilli, cumin, ground and fresh coriander and mint to the cooked potato, mixing until well combined. Using a tablespoon as a measure, roll heaped spoonfuls of mixture into balls and roll in sesame seeds. Place falafel balls on prepared baking tray in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

Meanwhile for the tahini sauce, combine all ingredients together in a small food processor, processing until smooth and well combined. Cover and refrigerate until required.

For the quiona, place drained quinoa in a medium saucepan with stock over a medium heat. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the liquid has evaporated and the quinoa unravels and expands. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

To assemble nourish bowls, combine cooked quinoa, mint, cucumber, salt and pepper together, stirring until combined. Evenly divide quinoa mixture between four bowls. Top each bowl with baby spinach, beetroot, cherry tomatoes, sauerkraut and cooked falafel. Serve with tahini dressing.
