One of my all-time favorite meatless recipes has to be falafel, the classic Middle Eastern dish made from balls or patties of seasoned ground chickpeas that are fried and served with a sauce made from yogurt and tahini paste. So naturally when I saw a recipe for Falafel Made at Home on Israeli Kitchen, I immediately asked if I could feature it here for the Meatless Monday fans. There are recipes all over the web for falafel using canned chickpeas, but please don't do that! This authentic falafel starts with dried chickpeas that are soaked overnight and then ground in a food processor with herbs and seasonings, made into balls and fried. I can tell by reading the recipe that this falafel will be great; hope you enjoy trying it!
