Sweet Potato & Turmeric Falafels
Falafels are a real favourite of mine at the moment. It’s safe to say I am mad for them! There’s something about that initial outer crunch and the warm soft centre I absolutely love. Not to mention the delicious flavour.
The first time I made this recipe my symptoms were probably at their worst and I was at an all time low. It was during the beginning stages of my research into foods and their health properties, and I had read over and over again the anti-inflammatory effects of Turmeric.
Endometriosis causes a high level inflammation within the body which in turn suppresses the immune system. For this reason I try my best to incorporate as many anti-inflammatory foods into my diet as I can. Turmeric is one of them. Infact, it’s a little bit of a superhero being that it is not only high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, but is anti-viral, anti-fungal and can help protect against cancer.
With all this in mind, this recipe has become the go to when my symptoms begin to flare up. Not only are they comforting, make a delicious addition to salads, curry’s or as a snack, but I know they are doing my body the world of good.
This recipe will make you 10 falafels, however 10 really doesn’t last long in our household, and as these last so well in the fridge I usually double up the recipe to make sure we are never without.
