Memorial Day weekend was an onslaught of juicy burgers, hot dogs and potato salad. Marc and I had a really nice cookout at my father-in-law’s house! As much as I loved it, it was time for a vegetarian change of pace to help my poor stomach recover. Since I had a can of chickpeas sitting in my pantry, I decided to make some super healthy and amazing baked falafel! The mixture came together in minutes in my food processor.
I like to serve my falafel with sliced tomato, sliced cucumber and Greek yogurt on fluffy, warm pita bread. Sometimes I even like to get fancy and make my own amazing whole wheat pita bread! (pssst, it’s much easier than it seems). Oh my goodness, it was like having little flavor bombs in my mouth when I bit in! There was a slight heat from the spices coupled with the freshness from lemon zest and dill. The texture was perfect! I was one happy woman. My Nana Jeanie would have been proud of me. She loved to make this stuff. Hope you all enjoy it! xoxo
