Blendtec Recipe of the Week: Falafel

Blendtec Recipe of the Week: Falafel



Originally from the Middle East, this deeply flavorful vegetarian fried dish is usually wrapped in a pita, but also tastes great on salads or dipped in hot sauce or tahini.


1⁄2   c
fresh parsley
1⁄2   c
fresh cilantro
1⁄2   c
baby carrots
2   15oz cans
chickpeas, drained
1⁄4   small
red onion
1   clove
2   tsp
kosher or sea salt
1⁄4   tsp
ground cumin
11⁄2   tsp
baking powder
1⁄3   c
all-purpose flour
1⁄8   tsp
ground black pepper

Add parsley, cilantro, carrots, chickpeas, onion, and garlic to the WildSide jar and secure lid. Press "Pulse" 6 times. Using a large spoon or rubber scraper, scrape the walls of the jar and slightly mix the ingredients. Replace the lid and press "Pulse" 6 more times. Repeat if necessary. 

Empty the contents of the jar into a medium-sized bowl. Add all other ingredients to the bowl. Using clean hands or a large spoon, mix all ingredients until incorporated. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to chill in refrigerator for a least 2 hours to allow flavors to marinate. 

Heat frying oil in a large saucepan until 350°F. Make tablespoon-sized balls and cook in oil until golden brown. Place on tray covered with paper towl to drain liquid. 

Serve in a pita with fresh lettuce, sprouts, sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and red pepper
