It’s leftover friday, I had about 3/4 of a can of chickpeas left from yesterday’s recipe and we don’t like wasting food, don’t we?!
But I have great memories of L’As du Falafel in Le Marais, Paris. Many years ago I had lunch there and boy how I still remember it vividly, crunchy Falafels with delicious veggies… and apparently it’s the favorite “restaurant” of Lenny Kravitz! Lenny wasn’t invited tonight and I have to admit, no one does it better than they do but it was worth the try.
Here we go:
Finely chop cucumber without the seeds and mix with some greek yoghurt and chopped Cilantro, pepper & Salt.
You could add garlic as in a tzatziki but as I put crushed garlic into the falafels and still need to work tomorrow , I didn’t 🙂
Put chick peas into your food processor together with cumin, crushed garlic, parsley, olive oil (tiny bit!!) and season.
Make little balls and cover them with flour.If it sticks to your hand, add more flour.
I was afraid they were gonna break frying but if you put them in your freezer half an hour before cooking they don’t!
You can eat falafels with almost every vegetable, empty your fridges fellow bloggers 🙂
Enjoy! ( If you ever want to visit L’As du Falafel, remember it’s closed for Shabbat on Saturdays.)
