I had a bunch of forking Pickled Beets and Pickled Onions and thought I could make tasty Falafels out of them and I forking did! This is a very original recipe I whipped up. The pickling of the beets and onions just gives these beet falafels another dimension. These falafels are a forking rainbow of flavor in your mouth. The Falafels came out really Forking Delicious! They got everything going on, tangy, sweet, sour, spicy and a little bit of crisp on the outside. Sort of meaty on the inside.
Set oven to 350 degrees you will need oiled pans for baking the falafels.
3 cups of your home made pickled beets
1 cup of your thinly sliced onion that you already pickled in with the beets
2 – 15.5 oz. Cans of Chickpeas drained and rinsed
1/2 cup of the liquid from the pickled beets
1 1/2 Cup Matzo Meal
2 Extra Large Eggs
2 Tablespoons Tahini
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 Tablespoon Coriander
2 Cloves Garlic Minced
Handful of Chopped Parsley or Cilantro or a mix of both
1/2 teaspoon of Kosher or Sea Salt
1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper
Using blender of any kind start with a chickpeas and beet liquid and then add beets, matzo meal, onions, eggs and blend well.
Now add remaining ingredients and by now you can just stir them in.
Roll into patty shapes on to oiled pans.
Bake at 350 degrees till done. I did them filling the oven for 15 minutes and turned them over and did another 10 minutes making it 25 minutes total.
Now make Pink Horseradish Dill Cream
About 2 cups Nonfat Greek Yogurt
About 2 Tablespoons Light Mayo
3 inches of Armenian Cucumber grated (skin and seeds removed)
About 1 tablespoon Horseradish
2 teaspoons dried dill
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 teaspoon Pickled Beet Liquid
Mix and chill
This recipe is a keeper! These came out really Forking Good!
