Falafel Sammie



This is a sammie made using the falafel recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance p98-99. This is when I learned that a blender is really no substitute for a food processor. So, take my adventures with a grain of salt. If you have a food processor, this is probably totally different (by different, I mean better).

I tried to blend the chickpeas and ingredients- all of which are pretty dry. So, I got a paste on the bottom of the blender and untouched stuff on top. After trying to stir, blend, stir to get the right consistency, I gave up and threw it all in the kitchenaid stand mixer which probably got it close to the right consistency.

Other than that, it went well. A bit greasy because it's falafel and it's fried, but they held together well and were really very flavorful. To make the sammy, I used Trader Joe's Mediterranean Hummus, pita bread, shredded lettuce, diced tomato and really thinly sliced red onion. It was really good, but I shall never again attempt it without a food processor.
