We made falafel this week for our bean challenge. Falafel is a mixture of ground chickpeas (from dried), spices, and garlic. You don’t cook the dried chickpeas beforehand, but you do need to soak them overnight.
I was surprised by how easy it is to make home made falafel. Normally, I would make it from a box mixture, but I thought I would give this My Favorite Falafel recipe a try. I didn’t have the fresh cilantro it called for, but it was still good nonetheless.
