Let’s Make Falafel for Israel’s Independence Day!
Yom Ha’atzmaut, so it’s the perfect time to eat some classic Israeli foods, like falafel!
May 2nd is Israel’s Independence Day, Yom Ha’atzmaut, so it’s the perfect time to eat some classic Israeli foods, like falafel! Our friends at The Nosher give us a list of 13 different ways to enjoy this delicious Israeli favourite.
Try number six on their list from Quirks and Smirks:
Pulse chickpeas, tahini, and chives in blender or food processor until mostly smooth, but still chunky. Transfer to bowl, and stir in flour, onions, and tomatoes.
Shape chickpea mixture around two pieces of diced cheese, into 1-inch-thick patties.
Pour enough olive oil into large skillet to have ¼ inch in bottom. Heat over medium-high heat. Place patties in pan, making sure patties don’t touch. Cook 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Transfer to paper-towel-lined platter to drain.
Eat a few plain when no one is looking, serve the rest over salad or put in a pita wrap, as pictured.
Brisket is a special dish loved by Ashkenazi Jews and prepared for special occasions…
