Supper Club: Try this super green falafel recipe


Supper Club: Try this super green falafel recipe

Avoca's super green falafel recipe is the ultimate store cupboard stalwart.

When rustling up a snack, it can be hard to hit the hat-trick of quick, easy and nutritious. It’s even harder to find recipes that you can conjure out of items you already have in your store cupboard. 

Most of our cupboards are currently heaving with canned chickpeas, which is perhaps why Avoca just shared their delicious super green falafel recipe.

It’s tasty, easy to rustle up and a great source of plant-based protein — and you probably already have some of the ingredients.
