FALAFEL

It’s February!!!!! By the end of this month I will be 21, about half way done with this semester,  and probably really happy because spring break is the first week of March😬 This month I want to focus on just going with the flow but still get hints done! I usually get stressed about school especially for the first tests because you just don’t know what the teacher wants! So this month I’m really going to try to plan ahead and study as I go instead of trying to get it all in in one night😄 wish me luck!! And guys I made falafel this weekend and they turned out really good!!!

Traditional Falafel (Print here)

Ingredients:

1½ cup dried chickpeas (soak in four cups of water for 8 hours or overnight)

1 small onion

2 cloves garlic

1 packed cup cilantro

½ cup spinach

1 tsp. ground cumin

¼ tsp. pepper

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. coriander

1 tsp. dried mint

¼ tsp. turmeric

 

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, add the chickpeas, onion, garlic, cilantro and spinach. Blend until crumbly
  2. Add the spices and blend until the mixture can hold together when pressed
  3. Form them into 24 small balls then flatten gently on top to form little pucks
  4. Now you can either bake these at 375 for 10 minutes each side on parchment paper. Or you can fry these in about 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil. Fry until golden brown on each side (I recommend frying them because it makes them moist in the middle but still crunchy on the outside!!!)
  5. Serve with tahini sauce or with hummus or however you like!
