Sweet Potato Falafels

Yummm…

I got really excited when I found this recipe…because it combines two things I love: falafels and sweet potatoes.  Eat them on a pita with cucumber, tomato, peppers and hummus/hot sauce.  Note: If you’re using dried garbanzo beans, soak them the night before. Prep time: 1.5-2 hours

Ingredients:

1 cup dried garbanzo beans (or one can)
1/2 large onion, roughly chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup parsley, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika (or cayenne)
2 teaspoons baking powder
6 to 8 tablespoons flour
1 cup sweet potato purée

Vegetable oil (about 3 cups for frying the falafels-DO NOT ADD INTO MIXTURE)

Roast sweet potato in a 420° oven for an hour and 20 minutes. Let it cool and slide the skin off and smash it. (I did this the night before and put it in the fridge overnight) 

Drain the garbanzo beans and put them in a food processor with the onion, parsley, garlic, cumin, paprika, and sweet potato.  Mix until blended, not puréed. Combine with flour and baking powder.

Form into small balls and put them on wax paper in the fridge for an hour to an hour and a half.  

Heat the oil in a large pot until there are no lines at the bottom of the pan, or 325°.  Fry one ball to test temperature and frying time…they will float when they’re finished.  Scoop out and drain on a paper towel.

Enjoy in a warmed pita with tzatziki sauce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, lettuce and of course, hot sauce :)
