Please make these Quinoa and Fava Bean Falafel with Lemon by Alice Hart; they are incredible. They have a delightful crunch from the quinoa—I used black for the picture—and a fresh quality from the herbs. Do buy the peeled or skinless dried fava beans, or you’ll spend a good 20 minutes slipping soaked beans from their brown skins. Try health food shops and anywhere selling North African food if you can’t find them in the supermarket.   Recipe from The Way to Eat Now: Modern Vegetarian Food © Alice Hart, 2016, 2017.
