Falafel Recipe

I love almost all the Mediterranean food. It's super healthy and light in the stomach. Today, I will share something that a friend of mine has taught me to prepare. It's so yummy, I can't resist but just chow it down!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 60 minutes

5 romaine lettuce leaves, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
4 turnips/pickles
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons flour
Mazola Oil for frying


Combine garlic, onion, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper (to taste) in medium bowl.

Make sure to mix ingredients together. You can also combine ingredients in a food processor. You want the result to be a thick paste.

Form the mixture into small balls, about the size of a ping pong ball. Slightly flatten.

Fry in 2 inches of oil at 350 degrees until golden brown (5-7 minutes).

Serve hot. Enjoy!

Plain yogurt,salt,pepper,lemon juice

Serving Suggestion
Falafel can be served as an appetizer with hummus and tahini, or as a main course. Stuff pita bread with falafel, lettuce, tomatoes, tahini, salt and pepper. As an alternative, falafel can be formed into patties and served like a burger.

Serves 4.
