Tangy Falafel

While looking through the cupboard one day, I came up with this idea. And it turned out mighty tasty!
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 cup frozen veggies
  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • Orange vinaigrette (I used Trader Joe's orange champagne vinaigrette)

1. Mash chickpeas, cilantro, olive oil and garlic together (can use a food processor). Roll in

1" balls. Bake on an oiled cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Turnover and bake for another 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, cook quinoa and veggies according to package directions.

3. Serve falafel on top of quinoa and veggies. Top with a few tbsp of vinaigrette.
