We made falafels last night, always trying something different. We went with the recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow's latest cookbook "It's All Easy: Delicious Weekday Recipes for the Super-Busy Home Cook." Get the recipe here. Light, healthy and easy to make! My favorite part was how much the children loved to make it (not so much eat it but I am happy with 50/50).
What Did the Kids Do?
EVERYTHING! They cut the cilantro and parsley, rinsed the beans, measured the yogurt and seasoning, put everything in the food processor, pulsed the food processor (a favorite of theirs) and then had the best time making the dough into balls.
Falafels and CACFP
According to CACFP Crediting Handbook (page 24) falafels are creditable. The chickpeas are a meat alternate. Always check with your CACFP Sponsor if you are unsure of creditable foods and recipes.
