My love for Beetroot continues with these vibrant and delicious Beetroot Falafel .
They came into existence because I had some roasted Beetroot and soaked Chickpeas lying in the refrigerator. A few more simple ingredients were mixed together with the Chickpeas and Beets to make these incredibly healthy yummy bites.

Usually I find that many people are averse to using Beetroot in their cooking. Many a times when I’ve shared a recipe using Beetroot on Instagram, I’ve received comments that this may not taste good. If you are one of those who do not like the taste of Beetroot, I would urge you to give this recipe a try. When cooked the right way, Beetroot tastes extremely delicious. Many of my friends and family who have eaten at our place have fallen in love with this very nutritious vegetable.

My Beetroot Falafel are a very colorful twist from the usual Falafel. They not only look delightful, infact taste addictively delicious too. The Beetroot adds a slight sweetness to these Falafel giving them a very unique flavor.

Find my very simple recipe below and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @supaintsonplates #supaintsonplates if you make these. I’m always delighted to hear from you.
