I love falafels and already shared a recipe for peanut butter falafels with you here on my blog, but this clean eating falafel burger recipe is something else. Something really filling, hearty, tasty and so easy to make. I love serving it with some sweet potato chunky chips or sweet potato fries as in the recipe here. On top you can add some mashed avocado mixed with a touch of Provamel yogurt, salt and pepper… Beautiful. If you’re after something  extra to go with this burger make my chunky tomato salsa, which adds great texture and fresh flavours.

I think this clean eating burger makes a brilliant supper or lunch, but also a healthy alternative to a traditional burger. It is much lower in saturated fat and calories (if you do count them) but still packs a punch in terms of protein and loads of plant based goodness. If you worry your kids won’t like it rest assured they will. My Sofia ate the whole lot and she can be a fussy mouth to feed.

As for the ingredients, make sure you follow the recipe precisely, but feel free to replace the ground almonds with any other nuts.  One more thing if you can coat the burgers (before frying) in a bit of coconut flour. It helps to seal them together and adds a nice crust and crunch too!

Clean eating falafel burger recipe made with only few ingredients. Top it with mashed avocado and homemade salsa! #vegan #cleaneating #nodairy #glutenfreeThis clean eating falafel burger tastes the best when eaten fresh, however you can store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.  If you don’t have any avocado make my peanut butter hummus instead. A divine combination!

    How do you think these would be if you baked rather than fried?

      I think this could work, but my only worry would be the possibility of them being too dry. Hedi xxx

    hi Hedi, I’ve been following your clean recipes for a while now as I’ve had issues with my digestion. I’m wanting to buy a food processor so I can make more recipes. I’m on a budget, could you please recommend one? I would like one that could chop nuts too. I love your recipes…..thank you x

    I made them yesterday for dinner and the leftovers are for my lunch today! Very nice recipe!! I used walnuts instead of almonds because I am allergic to almonds, but the result is great anyway…thanks Hedi!
