This Falafel recipe is based on the authentic way to make Middle Eastern Falafel. Enjoy this healthy and super tasty vegan recipe!
Falafel's are chickpea "patties" made with dried chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, that have been soaked overnight.
After soaking you blend the beans in a blender with garlic, onion, parsley and spices to a coarse paste.
Then this paste is shaped into patties and fried in oil.
There is absolutely no boiling in this falafel recipe!
By using the soaked (raw) garbanzo beans they stick together beautifully, and there is no need for eggs or anything else to hold them together when fried.
The result is crisp, crunchy on the outside and fresh green and soft on the inside. Absolutely delightful!
A Falafel is delicious stuffed in a pita pocket with lettuce, tomato and cucumber slices, red onion, pickles and either a yogurt and mint sauce, or a red hot sauce.
Very often this dish is served with a lemon-tahini dressing which is tasty as well.
Serve with pita bread, lettuce, tomato, thinly sliced red onion, pickles, and a garlic cucumber dressing for example.
