The 'Cook Republic' blog recently published a recipe for spicy falafel bites made from cauliflower instead of chickpeas. Falafels are vegetarian patties commonly enjoyed in the Middle East. The bite-sized patties are usually made from ground chickpeas, fava beans or a combination of both.
This recipe puts a unique spin on the popular dish by substituting cauliflower and butter beans for chickpeas. To make the spicy falafel bites, all that's required is pulsing the cauliflower in a food processor with butter beans, almond meal and piquant spices. The patties are then fried until golden brown, which gives them a delightfully crunchy texture. The recipe even includes instructions for making a healthy beetroot dip to serve alongside the falafels.
This vegan-friendly recipe could serve as a perfect appetizer for any upcoming holiday parties you may have.
