I’ve been thinking about falafel for a while. Like a really, really long time. Most recently after I had it in a restaurant in London. It was amazing. I was slightly put off by the vibrant green interior, but once I bit into it, I changed my mind.
I’ve perused recipes for baked falafel, fried falafel, raw falafel, and sweet potato falafel. But I never got around to making it. Until now…
I had the not so brilliant idea of using chickpea flour instead of pureed chickpeas. I bought a bunch of parsley. I figured I could just wing the recipe.
To console myself from my ultimate fail, I sat in a corner and cried for three hours straight while eating chocolate bon-bons straight out of the box. Kidding. Just kidding.
I actually made myself some Vanilla Roiboos tea (my favorite) and studied. Lame. I know. (Maybe I should have listened to this. It always cheers me up.) Then I went to a hockey game. We lost. Apparently it was just a fail day for everyone.
Does anyone have a good recipe for baked falafel? Preferably one that doesn’t turn out like a biscuit?
