I'm SO excited right now! I had planned a pit stop here for donuts and thought maybe there'd be 1-2 vegan options, but apparently it's 'vegan Saturday' and there were like 8-9!!! If you're driving through Wauwatosa, you HAVE to stop here at their new location, it's literally right off the highway! Here's what I got:
Passion fruit Coconut
I'm sharing my go-to, easy-on-a-weeknight, never-fail falafel ball recipe. Originally inspired by @sproutedkitchen, I've tweaked this recipe through several stages, to my own tastes, to make it easy, and best of all, it's oil-and-fried-free. And it is so dang good!! Pair it with a yummy hummus or tahini dressing and make in a pita or a bowl. Cherry tomatoes, cukes, and cabbage are my go to veggie toppers. Happy weekend friends! Beet hummus up next .
Falafel Balls (makes about 24, or 8 servings)
2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, seeded/de-ribbed & roughly chopped
1 t baking powder
3 T oat flour or rolled oats
1 1/2 t sea salt
1 t fresh ground pepper
1 T ground cumin
1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley*
1 t dried oregano
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment or silpat mat. Put garlic in food processor and pulse to mince. Then add beans, onion, jalapeno, and the rest of the ingredients. Pulse several times to chop everything to a course paste. If it's too wet, add a bit more oat flour, just until it will hold it's shape when rolled in your hand. (If made in advance, refrigerate until ready to use. It will firm up a bit more.) Take a small scoop and roll into ping-pong size balls. Place balls on baking sheet about 2" apart. Bake 18-20 minutes, turning over once. Delicious warm out of the oven, but these also save extremely well in the fridge or freezer!
*If you don't have fresh, about 2T dried parsley will also work.
