The sixty-second recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Falafel Salad, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 51. The theme for this week was chosen by Gaye: Lovely Legumes.
Ingredient list: whole wheat pita pockets, olive oil, lemon, tahini, cumin, ground coriander, salt, pepper, cayenne, chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumbers, scallion, parsley, and cilantro.
This is a fun recipe, and I always think chickpeas are a little bit of fun in themselves, their roly poly little selves served up in interesting ways. As the recipe name suggests, it's like a falafel, using all the ingredients you would normally find in a falafel but in a salad form instead. It is served with oven-crisped pita wedges. The dressing is simple and full of flavor with the different spices, the veggies and chickpeas all taste fresh and light, just perfect for a weekday lunch. Definitely a repeat. Buy the book, it's full of healthy quick fresh recipes that you will use time and again.
