I finally found my own recipe for falafels... I get the dry mix from the bulk bins at WinCo here in Chico and I mix it at 3/4 cup mix plus 1/4 cup nutritional yeast and 1 cup water... let sit 30 minutes and then using small ice cream scoop I make 12 falafels on a foil-covered baking sheet sprayed with non-stick coating... bake at 350 for 25 - 30 mins... they hold their shape, no grease, no messy clean up.. and they taste great in the salad
The falafels are very very tasty but they're very difficult to make... This is my 3th time making this recipe and first... They need ages to fry; Second.. if you don't make it right they're falling apart!
Ive made two batches of this and am such a huge fan. I find it to be very tasty and filling and obviously very healthy. For the dressing I cut way back on the tahini and add in extra lemon juice and lots of minced garlic and it is so delicious. Overall great source of protein and fiber. Definitely my new favorite meal!
Delicious alternative to fried falafel This was a delicious weeknight dinner easy to make and lots of flavor! The dried chickpeas were especially good in the falafel as they had a bit of crunch to them that you wouldn't get with canned chickpeas. Pros: Easy to make uses lots of veggies
