Sweet potato falafel (vegan, with air fryer version)
Golden, crispy little falafel made of sweet potatoes, chickpeas and spices. Beautiful stuffed into fresh bread with hummus, Greek yoghurt and snow pea shoots, or just layered across a little fresh salad.
This recipe makes quite a large amount of falafel, so you can keep the dough in the fridge for a few days quite comfortably.I prefer to keep the uncooked dough in the fridge and then quickly fry them up fresh before eating rather than frying them all first then keeping in the fridge. If you want to though you can pre-cook them all, then quickly reheat them in a hot pan when you want to eat them.
Can you freeze them?
Yes! Either freeze them uncooked, then let defrost and pan-fry as normal, or freeze cooked, then defrost and re-fry quickly in a hot oiled pan.
