In a bid to get some more interesting food and flavours into Islas life I thought I would make some Falafels!
When I Baby Led Weaned Abbie, I had all the time in the world to make her lovely food all the time… but Isla very rarely gets that treatment!
I needed to come up with something super super easy that I could batch cook every once in a while for her to try… the beauty of these is you could switch up the veg, spices, herbs etc etc and make any sort of combo… plus they are very healthy and Slimming World friendly… win win! And they are freezer friendly for extra time saving mummy happiness.
All you need is:
- 1 tin of Chickpeas
- 100g cooked, mashed Sweet Potato
- 100g cooked, mashed Brocolli
- 1 Egg
- 1tsp Mixed Spice
Empty the whole tin, including water, into a pan and heat gently for 4-5 minutes.
If you want to eat them straight away, pop the tray into the oven for 10 minutes on 180′.
And that’s it!
So simple and she absolutely loved them. They were quite crumbly and messy but I’ve never seen her enjoy something quite so much. I will definitely be trying diffeeent combinations and flavours.
