A beet-falafel is a fun way to incorporate beets into your meals, without the earthy flavor that usually accompanies them.
- 3 beets
- 1 cup chickpea flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 teaspoons cumin
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: ½ cup onion, chopped
Preheat oven to 375̊.
Wash, peel, and chop beets into 1-inch cubes.
Spread beets evenly on a lined baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, until soft.
Transfer cooked beets to a food processor or blender and mix until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
Scoop 1 Tablespoon of falafel dough at a time onto lined baking sheet. Repeat until baking sheet is full.
Bake falafel for 20 minutes.
Serve warm on salads, in a wrap, or with hummus! Enjoy!
