Falafel burger with tzatsiki

I got a blender/food processor from my mom as an (early) birthday gift, as I was driven crazy by my former blender that didn’t do anything more than complain (even when doing smoothies). This though, has already exceeded all my expectations!


Tadaaaa here it is, it cost my mom 75€ and he will serve me for many many years (until I can afford a KitchenAid).

So today I improvised some falafel, this isn’t that traditional recipe but darn good:


– one can of chick peas
– 2 cloves of garlic
– 1 whole chili
– 1 small onion
– squeeze of lemon juice
– handfull of coriander (didn’t have fresh parsley at home)
– 5-6 big mint leaves
– 1 tsp of cumin
– 1 tbsp of paprica
– good pinch of salt
– 1,5 tbsp of flour

Chop roughly chili, garlic, onion and coriander (stalks and all). Drain chickpeas and dry off quickly. Add all ingredients to the food processor and blend, add flour and blend more. The consistency should be grainy not like a paste!

Form into small balls or patties and fry in a lot of oil (not olive oil) until browned and crispy.

I did it as an burger with avocado, tzatsiki, onion, cucumber, tomato and lettuce as garnish, yum!!




Pre Fathers-day celebrations


Today, my dad came to visit us to Tallinn. We walked through Kalamaja to Telliskivi, and visited the saturday fleamarket and after that we went for lunch to F-hoone. I ate the falafel-feta burger and the boys ate the Furger and drank some local beers. I must say, that my previous experiences at F-hoone hasn’t been that good, after the first time I actually filed a complaint, but it was mainly because of the waiter. Now it was a super sweet girl who served us, and I’m happy!



After our lunch, we walked to the old town for coffee, and we ended up in Maiasmokk Kohvik, which is a well-known café in Tallinn.



Well, if anyone would ask me what I’ve done all week, I’d say I’ve been eating like a horse. Been totally spoiling myself and Niklas. For dinner today I made a yummy salad with crispy chorizo, avocado, olives, red onion and other things good. On thursday we celebrated that “hell week” was over, and we treated ourselves with some charcuterie, and yesterday the whole Indian feast. Gosh, I’m about to explode, next week more balanced diet haha! But you got to spoil yourself every once in a while, right? 🙂
