I was recently visiting my sister and had the opportunity for a few fresh ideas in the area of gluten-free, dairy-free meals. While at her home we enjoyed delicious Split Pea Falafel and I would love the share the recipe with you as well.
1 bag of split peas (soaked in water for 2-3 hours to hydrate)
fresh herbs, chopped: parsley, cilantro, and dill (about 1 cup total)
garlic (2-3 cloves)
1 white or yellow onion
1/2 t allspice
1/2 t cumin
1/8 - 1/4 t cayenne
salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender till well blended. Check flavor add salt and pepper or additional herbs for taste. Add water if needed. Form patties or balls and fry in oil. Serve with fresh greens.
It is easy to freeze any extra batter for a quick meal in the future.
