Healthy vegan Falafel

Falafel (if you don't know) is a veggie burger, Falafel is a traditional Arab food (I think this is my second or third falafel recipe I post). These fried vegetarian fritters are often served along with humus.

When falafel is made the traditional way is indeed a great   source of protein for people who have cut meat of their diet.

And if you top it with lettuces or veggies in a pita it becomes filling and nourishing meal.
BTW my daugther say this is the best Falafel recipe I have made and you know she is a vegetarian!
We ate with salads this day and I love with some lettuce leaves but in a pita bread is perfect too!

1  1/2 cups dry, chickpeas
(let them soak overnight)
1 carrot grated
1 diced onion
1/2 cup finely chopped patsley
4 tablespoon normal flour
 3 o 4 cloves garlic mashed
1/2 tsp caraway seeds ground
1 tsp paprika powder
salt and pepper


Take chickpeas and blend using a food processor until a paste like consistency is achieved.
Put the chickpea paste in a bowl and blend all the other ingredients together in the food processor except the oil.
Mix the ingredients in the bowl with chickpea paste.

Take small amounts of the mixture and fold them into patties.
Take a friying pan and heat some oil.(medium heat)
Fry the patties both sides until they are golden in color.
You can also choose to bake the patties  but the baking process take more longer than frying.
Line a plate with a paper towel and put the falafels on them so they absorb the oil
Serve hot.
With salads or in a pita bread.

Me encantan los falafel, mi hija es vegetariana asi que siempre veo recetas que no sean con carne o pollo.
No se si es la segunda o tercera receta que publico de falafel.
Pero esta dijo la Espe que era la que más le ha gustado.
El Falafel es una comida propiqa del Meido Oriente pero bastante conocida. 
Es como una hamburguesa vegetariana, se puede comer con ensaladas (me encanta con lechuga) o en pan pita queda super buena.
Es básicamente de garbanzos que se dejan remojando el dia anterior y se muelen bien y se hace una pasta y despues se hacen como pequeñas hamburguesas.


1 taza y media de garbanzos secos que se dejan remojando , se cuelan y se muelen hasta tener una pasta consistente.
1 zanahoria cruda rallada
1 cebolla picada fina.
1/2 taza de perejil picado.
4 cucharadas de harina normal.
3 o 4 dientes de ajo molidos.
1/2 cucharadita de comino molido
1 cucharadita de paprika en polvo
sal y pimienta a gusto
aceite para freir
