OMG, falafels. They’ve got to be one of my most favorite meals. For lunch or dinner, you really can’t go wrong with 3-4 falafel balls wrapped with salad and garlic sauce in some bread.
Well, these are different. Don’t get me wrong, these are delicious. The flavor is amazing, they’re adorable, make me want to hold them all day long whispering “my precious”…but they’re not crispy. Just being honest here – if you’re looking for crispy, look for another recipe. This one’s the lazy type.
There’s no soaking chickpeas, no frying them, no nothing. Let me paint you a really bad picture. I took a can of chickpeas, added some seeds, vegetables and spices and pulsed that whole thing in my food processor and then formed small balls and baked them in the oven with some olive oil. That is it. Not genius, but I loved them.
