Weight Watchers Supper Club
We were very pleasantly surprised with the weight watchers supper club app. Gone are the days when healthy food was tasteless and limited. Not only are there a variety of different recipes on the app but they are all easy to do and, most importantly, they taste scrummy. We have selected our fave (Falafels – YUM!) and have made a few Hip & Healthy amendments to it just to make it even more nutritious and vegan-friendly. Such as we swapped the plain yogurt for plain soy yogurt, and instead of using plain white flour we used spelt flour. Both of these ingredients are just as easily got hold of and don’t often cost any more and will make your meal even more nutritious. Try it for yourself and let us know how you get on!

- Spray a non-stick frying pan with low fat cooking spray. Cook the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes over a low heat, until soft. Put them into a food processor with the chickpeas, parsley, coriander, cumin seeds, salt and flour and blend for 15-20 seconds to form a smooth, thick paste. (You could also use a hand-held stick blender). Form into 16 rounds, about the size of ping-pong balls. Chill for 10 minutes.
2. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180БC/fan oven 160БC. Mist a baking sheet with low fat cooking spray. Arrange the falafel balls on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.
3. Arrange the lettuce, tomatoes and pepper strips on 4 serving plates. Make the dressing by mixing together the yogurt, cucumber and mint. Season. Serve the salads topped with the warm falafel, drizzled with the dressing.
