First Falafel

{My Falafel}
When we went to Israel this summer I tried falafel for the very first time and I realized that I had found one of my true culinary loves. If you don’t know falafel is like a little meat ball with no meat, it is just ground up chick peas and some seasonings; you put it in a pita with some humus and it is amazing!

I found this blog- it has a bunch of recipes for authentic humus and falafel so I decided to try making it on my own.

The directions were simple
Soak, rinse and dry the chick peas

Mix ingredients together

make them into balls and fry in a little bit of oil

No one mentioned that they burn *super* easy! So several of them burned but most of them were great. They were really quick and easy but I think I could use some hints from a pro before I give it another shot. There are some great looking humus recipes on this blog that I will be trying though!

I LOVE falafels! I've never made my own but I'm feeling like maybe I could now!

Very interesting! Like the first time I made fudge, I didn't boil it long enough and it came out runny.

Oh my, you are always making stuff I love! I LOVE FALAFEL! The best tip I can offer for next time, is to scoop them with a disher (like a 2oz. ice cream scoop), instead of rolling them into balls. The texture should be light, but rolling them gets too compacted. Also, a good food processor or blender, on low speed, can chop the ingredients instead of mashing it all together, resulting in a lighter, less dense falafel.
