Green Goddess Salad Dressing

1 tsp of Viridem by Anima Mundi
1 cup of greek style oat yogurt
1/2 cup of fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh dill
2 large leaves of mint
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 tbsp spring onions
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove
1/4 tsp salt 

Method

Simply add your ingredients into one deep bowl. I used a hand held immersion blender and blended all the ingredients. Alternatively you can blend them. I like my salad dressing creamy and smooth but you can keep it chunky too. Add 1 tbsp of water at a time if you would rather it to be a more thinner consistency. 
*will last for up 2 days in the fridge covered

Green Tahini Dip

1/4 tsp Chanca Piedra by Anima Mundi 
1/2 cup of tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp of salt
3 garlic cloves
1/2 cup of fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 fresh dill 
1 slice of bottled jalapeño 
1/4 tsp smoked paprika

Method

Place all your ingredients in a bowl or blender. Blend using an immersion blender or a blender. Taste for salt, lemon

Falafels

2 cups cooked/canned chickpeas*
1 medium yellow
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 fresh dill
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin powder
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Liver Vitality by Anima Mundi
2 tbsp cornstarch 
*chickpeas can be soaked for 6 hours or overnight and then cooked on medium heat. Or you can use chickpeas from a can. If you’re using canned chickpeas, I’d cook the chickpeas for 5 mins in a small pan and add 1/2 tsp of baking soda while cooking. If cooking soaked beans I’d add 1/2 tsp of baking soda in the last 10 minutes or so. 

Method

  1. In a food processor, add in all your ingredients. Pulse until it looks like a coarse meal. 
  2. Using your hands make circular patties.
  3. Warm up your oil in a wok 
  4. Place your patties inside the wok, making sure not to overcrowd
  5. It takes about 1-2 minutes to brown on each side
  6. Place on a plate that has a paper towel on top to soak up excess oil
  7. Alternatively, you can preheat the oven to 350F and bake the falafels
  8. On a baking tray lined with parchment paper, place your falafel balls on top. 
  9. Bake for 10 minutes
  10. Enjoy with tahini dip on its own or place inside a wrap with all the garnishes.
*will last for up to 2 days in the fridge.
