3 servings

Ingredients

2 cup white onion, chopped
1 scoop Boku Super Maca
6 count garlic cloves
2 cups cooked chickpeas, drained
1 cup parsley leaves
1 cup cilantro leaves
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp canola oil, for sauteing
3 count Pita bread
1/2 count red onion, sliced
2 cup arugula
4 tbsp tzatziki or tahini sauce

Directions

1. Add the onion and garlic cloves to the bowl of a food processor and pulse just until they are finely minced. Remove the mixture and set it aside.


2. Add the chickpeas, Boku Super Maca, parsley, cilantro, salt, chili powder, and cumin to the bowl of the food processor and pulse until they are roughly blended but not pureed.


3. Return the onion mixture to the food processor, along with the baking powder and just enough flour so that when you pulse the processor, the mixture begins to form a small ball and is not sticky. Transfer the falafel mixture to a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 1 hour.


4. Once the falafel mixture has chilled, use a small ice cream scoop or spoons to form the mixture into balls (roughly 3 Tablespoons per ball). (Note: You can also add additional flour at this point if the mixture is too wet to scoop.)


5. Set a large sauté pan over medium heat and add a liberal amount of canola oil so that the pan is well-coated. Let the pan preheat for 3 minutes then add the falafel one by one, browning them on the first side for 3 minutes, then flipping them once and browning the second side until the mixture is cooked throughout.
Transfer the falafel to a paper towel-lined cooling wrack and immediately season them with salt. Repeat this process until you have cooked all of the falafel.
8) Place three or four falafel inside a halved, warmed pita with arugula, red onion, and sauce of choice.
