Beauty and the Beet Falafels

You know how much I love beets, don't you? The funny thing is that my love for them has very little to do with how they taste. My love for them comes from knowing how much they have changed my life.

I value the many gifts the beet is able to provide my body. When I know they are taking care of my cardiovascular system and helping keep my heart and blood in top notch shape, I feel the beauty within me awaken.

These falafels may be pan fried or baked in the oven. You may make them ahead and store them or you may choose to gobble them up in one sitting:) (probably not the best idea if you have no one to share them with)

1 1/2 c cooked garbanzo beans

1 1/2 c shredded raw beets with the skin on

3-5 cloves of garlic

1 c packed Italian parsley with stems

1 inch turmeric root

1 T almond butter

1 T muun chi Golden Turmeric Kvass

3 T ground flax

ground cumin, salt and pepper to season

Soak the flax in the Kvass for about ten minutes. Put all the ingredients in a food processor. Gently pulse being careful not to overpulse. You want the texture to be a little coarse and not completely smooth.

Roll into small balls or patties. Spritz with a avocado spray. Bake in a 375 degrees oven for 30 minutes or until slightly crisp. Or you may choose to do a light pan fry in a little avocado oil.

Serve with a side of muun chi Cocofir that is combined with chopped garlic and dill. Store leftovers in the freezer or eat within 4-5 days if in the fridge. Happy beautiful guts!
