Oil-free baked falafel from The Oh She Glows Cookbook | I love falafel, but never eat it because my stomach doesn't like fried foods.  I loved this recipe because it packs a ton of traditional falafel flavor (seasoned with garlic, onion, cilantro, parsley, and cumin) but without the added oil.  I made them without the breadcrumbs, which created a soft patty as opposed to one with a crispy outer shell.  I ate them on top of stir-fries, and wrapped in romaine lettuce.  I had planned to make the accompanying tomato cucumber chutney, but my cucumber sat a little too long in the fridge and had to be discarded.  Sliced tomatoes were a great replacement, though.  

Sweet roasted corn risotto from Happy Healthy Life | This was a super easy risotto recipe that yielded delicious creamy results.  I added a little broccoli which paired perfectly with the corn and cheese.  Even better, it was a cinch to make and not time or energy intensive either.  I also loved the short list of ingredients and recipe steps.  I will definitely make this again.

  1. I'll have to check out the falafel recipe in Oh She Glows. They look delicious, and I can always use more falafel in my life. I usually make the baked falafel from Appetite for Reduction and omit the oil. They still brown well and have enough moisture without it. That's probably my favorite recipe from that book!

    1. tina, you can't mess this recipe up (or any baked falafel, really)! you just combine everything in a food processor, shape into little patties, and then bake. easy peasy ;)

  3. I try to avoid fried foods as well, although I have a soft spot for french fries. It will be interesting to see the difference between a fried falafel and the Oh She Glows baked falafel.
