2 Falafel Balls & Veggies

(*Taken from Phase 3 of the eLifestyle eTransformation Weight Loss & Lifestyle Program)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dried garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 large onion, roughly chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 6 Tbsp flour (I used all-purpose flour)

Prep:

  1. Soak beans overnight in plenty of water.
  2. The next day, put the garbanzo beans and onion in the food processor and pulse to roughly chop.
  3. Next, add remaining ingredients and pulse until combine.  Refrigerate mixture for a few hours.
  4. After the mixture is chilled, pre-heat your oven to 375° F.
  5. Form garbanzo bean mixture into 25 walnut sized balls.  Place the 25 balls on a greased baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Increase oven temperature to a 500° F broil. Broil falafel for 3-5 minutes (or longer) until the tops are golden brown.
