A Reoccuring Favorite: Falafels

by Nicole on February 22, 2011

Yesterday I felt like having falafels for dinner. I have a small obsession with chickpeas. I like to find as many different ways to make them as humanly possible. There’s socca, hummus, and just having them on top of a big salad. I wanted something different, so I went with some falafels. I’ve made a couple different versions before, but this is my favorite to date.

Yesterday I also tried BodyRockTV, which is a whole different post that needs to be written. It kicked my butt in 20 minutes! I was sweating and breathing REALLY hard. If you haven’t tried it, but want a short, intense workout, head over there! I am pretty sore today!

What is your favorite way to use chickpeas or beans?

Thank you SO much for those of you who have submitted my blog to Women’s Health Magazine Blog’s We Love round up! If you haven’t yet, I’d SO appreciate if you would! It’s very quick and pretty painless. Thank you!

I’m off to the gym to hit up the treadmill…but first I have to finish this cup of coffee! :)

Homemade falafel is the best! Before I tried it, I thought it would be a long/complicated process — but the food processor makes it easy!

I love making bean burgers! In fact, I am about to make some now! I love quinoa flour…istn’t it great! It makes great waffles too. I think I may be a bit obsessed with waffles. I hope you are enjoying your week off!

Yummm! I haven’t had falafels in a while, thanks for reminding me. My favorite way to use chickpeas and beans is in soup!
