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.

Mix the chickpeas in the blender with the other ingredients.

Form it into balls the size of walnuts.

Fry it up! No, the kids did not like it, due to the garlic. But I did!
