The @cook.vegetarian shares her High Protein Green Falafel recipe which makes for a great sharing platter for those Xmas get togethers.
Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Arrange broccoli florets on the prepared baking tray drizzle with avocado oil and season to taste.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender and golden brown.
Add chickpeas, peas, avocado oil, parsley, mint, spices and roasted broccoli into a food processor.
Pulse until the mixture comes together and forms a sticky paste. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Just before frying falafels add 1 teaspoon of baking powder into the mixture and mix until well combined.
Using your hands form the mixture into small patties. You can also roll falafels in bread crumbs at this point, if desired for an extra crunch.
Pan fry or bake until falafels are golden brown.
Serve on a platter with hummus, crackers, olives and any of your favourite toppings.
