Nothing is more satisfying than disguising vegetables and turning them into foods that your kids end up loving.
When you are in the mood for some vegetarian cooking, why not substitute meat for a yummy falafel burger or wrap. After eating it, our kids actually said: ‘This is delicious! What sort of meat is this?’ I said its ‘legume’ meat which left them scratching their heads until I explained what legumes are and how good they are for us. They were surprised that the burgers actually tasted delicious and yet were still just as filling as a meat burger patty.
For this week, I decided to experiment with different legumes and make them into rissoles and ‘meat balls’ for burger and sandwich fillings in order to get our family into the habit of eating more vegetarian meals. I figured if the first dish went so well, why not try and make a few more. I'll see how I go.
The sauce that goes with the falafel is zesty and refreshing and just coats the whole meal in goodness.
