Mediterranean Inspired Falfael
Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 15 Mins
Cooking Time: 20 Mins
Ingredients

    4 Cups stemmed and torn collard greens (one bunch), or swiss chard

    1 Can chickpeas, rinsed & drained

    3 Medium to large cloves garlic, chopped

    1 1/2 Tablespoons tahini

    1 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

    1/4 Teaspoons cumin

    Pinch Sea salt & black pepper

    3-4 Tablespoons oat flour

    4 Tablespoons olive oil for cooking

Method
  1. Add collard greens, chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, and a healthy pinch each salt and pepper to a food processor and mix to combine (see photo).
  2. Once well incorporated, transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in oat flour 1 Tbsp at a time until the mixture is thick enough to handle – about 3-4 Tbsp.
  3. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. I added more salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and a touch more tahini.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat and add 2 Tbsp oil at a time. Swirl to coat pan.
  5. Add 4 falafel (or however many will fit very comfortably) to the pan at a time.
  6. Check at the 1-2 minute mark to ensure they’re not browning too quickly. If they are, slightly reduce heat. Flip once deep golden brown – about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Cook until the underside is golden brown as well.
  8. Serve immediately with hummus and paprika or inside a pita with garlic sauce or hummus.
  9. Will store in the fridge, layered with parchment paper in an airtight container for several days. Freeze to keep longer.
