1 cup dried chickpeas ( or 1 tin)
1/2 brown onion, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons flour
Put the chickpeas in a large bowl and add enough cold water to cover them and let soak overnight, then drain. Or use canned chickpeas, drained.
Place the drained, uncooked chickpeas and the onions in the bowl of a food processor add parsley, coriander salt, garlic, and cumin. Process until blended but not pureed.
Sprinkle in the baking powder and 4 tablespoons of the flour, and pulse, mould into little balls or falafel shapes ( cover your hands in extra flour if mixture is too wet and it's easier to handle ) and refrigerate for a few hours before frying
Shallow fry in olive oil a few minutes each side until cooked!
I get about 20 falafels

My youngest two don't do sandwiches so I tend to do mini-tubs of cherry toms, small tub of blueberries, hommus and something to dip with, mini mini quiches, chunks of avocado with a little fork, cheeks of mango, mini savoury muffins, sushi, rice balls etc

Do you have recipes for the salmon noodle salad and the mini chicken drumettes? Do you yoghurt coat the goji berries yourself? AND...my boy lives olives too....do you know much about their healthfulness/ones to steer clear of etc.?
Sorry to bombard you☺️

School Lunch Box Ideas!
Errrr so things have changed since I was at school and the staple was a vegemite sanga and an apple. Yikes. Luckily I've got another 5 years before DD starts school. I need to learn how to cook.

Man my DS started school last year and I was so excited to try out all these great lunch ideas. After a couple of weeks of fancy offerings he said 'mum I just want a Vegemite sandwich' 😂 so now he gets a Vegemite sandwich everyday as well as a piece of fruit or vegetable- generally Apple, pear, melon, grapes, mushrooms, carrot or snow peas- and one or two other snacks (depending on size)- popcorn, savory muffin, banana bread, muesli bar, pizza scroll, frittata, meatballs, hard boiled egg, cheese and crackers, mini rice cakes, yogurt. I make things in big batches and lunches are very easy to prep. Make sandwich, grab fruit, reach into freezer and pull something out.

I wouldn't stress about the home made meals. Depending on your kid they're just as likely to want whatever their best friend has anyway. I've also had mine complain that their lunches are "too fancy".
So yep now it's a sandwich and fruit and some crackers. Nothing else gets eaten.
