Falafel IngredientsEasy Falafel Hack Recipe using Trader’s Joes Falafel Mix

We have recently discovered the joy of Trader Joe’s falafel mix! Our OTOT recipe hack expands from a basic falafel ball to a delicious treat for any time of day! The mix calls for 1 cup of mix and 1 cup of water and that’s it! For the OTOT version, we suggest the following:

 

 

Add water, peeled garlic, washed parsley leaves (a few stems included is fine!) and olive oil in a small Nutribullet cup. Blend until the ingredients are fully ground together into small bits. Add mixture to 1 cup of falafel mix in a medium bowl and stir together. Add a sprinkle of sea salt and a few grinds of black pepper and let sit, covered, for 30+ minutes. The ingredients will rise and absorb additional moisture. After a half-hour, scoop and roll into palm sized balls and place on a greased baking sheet (we grease ours with a thin smear of EVOO). Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
