Otto’s Vege Felafels

Into a blender put one chopped zucchini/courgette, one chopped red pepper (capsicum) and eight/ten cherry tomatoes, a few sprigs of fresh thyme, ground black pepper and some chilli (if you’re not into zucchini, just use peppers and tomato)

Blitz till vegetables are virtually liquid

To a bowl, sdd one packet of shop bought gluten free felafel mix and add the liquid vegetables instead of water – eg, if the packet asks for 250ml of water, add 250ml of your vege liquid!

Mix well and leave to rest for 10 mins before gently frying individual dollops in olive oil

Try rolling some in sesame seeds before frying

Serve with guacamole, hummus and salsa … and salad leaves for a picnic or lunch … YUMMO

Try wrapping in lettuce leaves with hot chilli and guacamole

Freeze the left over vege mix for your next batch or fry fish or prawns in it for a quick meal
