Black Eyed Pea Falafel Recipe

Black Eyed Pea Falafel Recipe

We always appreciate a healthy recipe with a twist and this vegan, gluten-free Black Eyed Pea Falafel is just that. 

For you falafel traditionalists, this might require that you step out of your legume box.  It’s not a comittment, just a tasty experiment worth trying. Just be sure to follow the soaking instructions. You’ll love the slightly spicy kick and healthy green flecks from a load of cilantro, parsley, mint leaves and scallions.

For those with gluten sensitivities, black eyed peas are gluten free in their dry state. Do not use canned beans.

Thank you, Back 40 Kitchen in Greenwich, CT, for this delightful twist on one of our favorites. To read more about Back 40 Kitchen and why we love it so, scroll down or click here for our review.
