Recipe

I know what your thinking. Really falafel in the crock pot. But yes, you can make delicious falafel in the crockpot. And it’s really simple and you probably have what you need at home already. Simply mash up some chickpeas, add spices and an egg to bind them, form cute little patties, and throw them in the crockpot. Three hours later you have falafel with a nice crispy outside and soft inside. Serve with your favorite yogurt sauce. I used yogurt, garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
