So today I was feeling creative and decided to make falafel.

It came out really good, with good fiber:
1.25 c soybeans, dry (can be found in bulk section at health food store)
.5 c green lentils
1 tbsp cumin (or more to taste)
1/2 c hot water
1 tbsp parsley
1 tsp cilantro
.5 small onion
1 lg green onion
10 tbsp flaxmeal
salt & pepper to taste
1.5 c oil (I used grapeseed & sesame)

soak dry beans overnight (or rapid boil)
in a food processor, process onions until pureed. Add drained beans & water and process but make sure they are not pureed. You want it to have a nutty texture.

In a large bowl, put pureed mixture in with herbs, salt and pepper. Mix in flaxmeal 1 tablespoon at a time.

Heat oil in a heavy sauce pan (or use a fry daddy). When oil is piping hot, drop in small, tablespoon sized balls of mixture into the oil (use measuring tablespoon to ensure they are all the same size) . turn while cooking until evenly browned.

Yields about 36 falafel. Eat on greek style salad, or drizzle with tahini and munch.
