Did anyone play a joke today? Or fall for someone else’s April Fools? I was forwarded this by a few people (who know of my love for the ‘Bucks), and I definitely fell for it at first. HA!
Anyways, I don’t feel like posting today, so I’ll just give you my breakfast and the recipe from the falafel I made the other day.
I toasted a plain H&H bagel then added a mountain of Earth Balance (the green one that’s soy free) and carob chips. Decadent for so early in the day, huh? What can I say, I’m living it up!!
Now that’s some melty perfection. Yup. Me likey. Now onto the chickpea lovin’
Lazy hippie’s baked falafel
- wheat flour
- matzo meal (or just omit and add more wheat flour)
- dried onion powder
- parsley flakes
- garlic powder
- cayenne pepper
- celery seed
- white pepper
*I measured ABSOLUTELY none of it, so I apologize for the lack of recipe
Here’s a little somethin’ somethin’ I learned: DON’T add hot, freshly cooked garbanzos into a bullet and then close the lid. The dang thing nearly blew up in my face! So scary. As I was unwinding the top after I was done pulsing, I could feel the pressure and got really nervous. I lost at least 1/4th of the chickpea mash on the table and wall.
Mix it all together and scoop/shape into balls.
Then bake at 350 degrees x 30 minutes (or, if you live in New York, until you set off your smoke alarm).

I know they aren’t true falafel (since they aren’t fried), but I definitely don’t trust myself with a bubbly vat of oil…pretty sure that’s how you lose your rent deposit. So let’s just pretend that my baked version is in the name of health.
