Flafel Balls

Made a big batch today to freeze for future meals:)

Baked Falafel Balls

1 cup frozen lima beans (thawed in water, then drained)
1/4 cup fresh parsely
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 15 oz. can or 1 1/2 cups soaked* chickpeas
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. Real Salt
1/8-1/4 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tbs. fresh squeezed lime juice
3 Tbs. millet flour (I grind 3 Tbs. of millet to a flour using my blender)
1 head green cabbage, leaves separated to use as wraps
Garnishes: Tomatoes, Red Onion, Avocado, Raw Sesame Seeds

In a food processor, combine everything except millet flour until a thick paste. You might have to scrape down the sides of the processor intermittently. Add the flour and process to combine.

On a cookie sheet (non-stick works best, but if you prefer not to use non-stick, oil the cookie sheet a bit) drop falafel mixture 1 Tbs. at a time and bake at 350 degrees until browned (usually about 15 min). They will be slightly crunchy on the outside, and less crunchy in the middle.

  1. I am Jenny from I just saw that you posted about us a little while ago. I'm so glad that you like our website! I have posted a handful of the recipes from your parents' books (which I LOVE!), but am always sure to give credit when credit is due. Sometimes, I tweak the recipes a bit to make them my own, as in the recipe above. Thanks for reading! I'm glad I found your website!
