Do you ever find yourself looking at your fridge and wondering what all you can do with the produce at your disposal. Well in this recipe I wanted to use all the greens that I had because I have been eating chocolates that my dad brought from Paris since the past week, and I needed nature’s detox to work through me.

The sprouted lentil in this takes the salad to another level as it gives the salad a protein boost and also that fresh crunch. There are up to 100 times more enzymes in sprouts than uncooked fruits and vegetables.  Enzymes are special types of proteins that act as catalysts for all your body’s functions. Extracting more vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids from the foods you eat ensures that your body has the nutritional building blocks of life to ensure every process works more effectively.

Eating organic green vegetables is a sure fire way to avoid any doctor for the rest of your life. Prescription medication is a huge business and would suffer greatly if everyone started eating soul food. The food that we eat is the medicine that can heal and transform us. Food is not just calories, it is information. It talks to your DNA and tells it what to do. The most powerful tool to change your health, the environment and the entire world is your fork, so choose wisely.

So one day as I went downstairs after waking up, I had a strong craving for Falafels. My mom had soaked chickpeas at night. She had already boiled them and told me to take out a portion for myself as I always do for salad or hummus. Falafels require you to add some kind of flour to them which I was not in the mood for because it makes them unnecessarily heavy.

The lentils that I had left for sprouting a few days back came to my mind and I had a beautiful inspiration, why not add them to my falafel mixture. So I blended them and added them to the already mashed chickpeas and they created magic. The consistency was perfect and the taste was flawless.
