Now, I’ve never had falafel before. In fact, I didn’t even know what was in it! (Its chickpeas amongst other things if youre wondering!) I kept seeing it in blogs and somehow got it in my brain that when I got a food processor, that would be the first thing I would make! So, I looked at about 20 recipes (thank you AllRecipes, and in the end, made up my own.
The line-up! I ended up not using the egg.
Add in your finely diced onion, 2 garlic cloves, 3/4 tsp salt and some pepper:
Mix well, using your Spoonula to scrape the sides!
THIS is when you mix in your flour and bread crumbs. I used 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of whole wheat breadcrumbs, and spoonula-ed them to mix 🙂
Roll into approximately 15 balls and then place them on a sprayed pan!
I was EXTREMELY happy with falafel in general! Looking at the ingredient list though…how can you go wrong? They would be good over a salad (lunch tomorrow?). Now we’ll see if I can get PW to try one 🙂
Weekly run recap tomorrow!
