Mediterranean cuisine at its best.
Made with chickpeas, fresh parsley and coriander, onion, garlic and spices, this is an easy recipe to put together - and an even faster dish to eat.
As yummy as it is, falafel comes with lots of protein and fiber. Add a salad (we recommend a Fattoush Salad) to make for a complete meal.
Ideally, use a small ice cream scoop to portion the falafels - this will ensure an equal volume each time.
A tahini sauce pairs beautifully with the falafel and adds a rich sesame flavor to an already yummy meal.
Out of the many recipes I came across when doing my research, absolutely each and every one of the recommended using dry chickpeas - as canned chickpeas are too watery to make for a good texture before baking.
Just remember to soak your chickpeas the day before making your falafel.
