The Falafel Experiment

Today I made falafel for the first time. It came out ridiculously delicious! Allow me to share with you how I made it…

Ingredients:
• Garbanzo Beans (not from a can!), soaked overnight and rinsed well
• Fresh Parsley, roughly chopped
• Garlic, minced
• Onion, roughly chopped
• Turmeric
• Cumin
• Cayenne Pepper
• Sea Salt
• Grapeseed Oil

Directions:
In a food processor, blend all ingredients (except oil) together until mixture is finely processed. Using a spoon and your hands, make balls out of mixture squeezing as much liquid out as possible. Heat enough oil to cover balls in a deep skillet on high heat or use a deep fryer. Once oil is hot enough to fry, place balls in the oil and fry for about 8 minutes. Remove from oil and allow to slightly cool.

*I served this with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and tahini dressing on warm pita bread.*

Tahini Dressing
Ingredients:
• 1 cup Tahini
• The Juice From 1 Lemon
• Sea Salt
• 1/4 cup Warm Water

Directions:
Whisk all ingredients together until well combined. Pour on top of your falafel prior to serving.
