I don’t know when I first tried falafel. Quite honestly, it may have been post-bar during my university days.
I love chickpeas. I love them almost any way they are served: masala, roasted, in salads, hummus… if it’s chickpeas you can pretty much guarantee I’ll love it.
I learned how to make falafel a number of years ago when someone gave me a cookbook that had a recipe for them. Since then I’ve modified it so that they hold together better. It’s gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan.
The Love Of Falafel
They really aren’t hard to make, but I only just got back into cooking them myself since our local Middle Eastern spot shut down. The owner decided to sell the business and go travelling.
I totally get it – good for him! But I was pretty sad. They made a really mean falafel – and it was gluten-free, dairy-free… that’s hard to find!
I’ve dug out and resurrected my recipe and am sharing with you today. Enjoy!
