Most of the time kids are left to their own devices to determine how long they sit for lunch & recess. That leads to lunch boxes coming home full because who wants to eat when you can play ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is important to have easy food that you can pick up with your hands that is more enticing in a lunch box and if they can be left overs...even better! Another technique- pack less food. This makes it less overwhelming & easier for kids to finish lunch. Just be prepared to have an after school snack ๐Ÿ˜‹ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

INGREDIENTS โคต๏ธ
1 lb dry chickpeas/garbanzo beans - you must start with dry, do NOT substitute canned, they will not work.
1 small onion, roughly chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
3-5 cloves garlic (I prefer roasted garlic cloves)
1 1/2 tbsp chickpea flour
1 3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Pinch of ground cardamom
Any preferred oil for frying. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

INSTRUCTIONS:
Soak chickpeas in water & splash of ACV overnight then drain. Chop in food processor along with onion, garlic, parsley, chickpea flour, seasoning & spices. Don't over process! You want to scrape down sides of food processor while roughly forming a paste. After processing, transfer to a bowl to press with a fork & mix. This allows larger chunks to get broken down. Cover bowl & refrigerate for 2 hours. Fill skillet with oil to depth of 1 ยฝ inches. Heat oil slowly over medium heat & drop desired- sized balls of falafel mixture into oil. Fry for 3 min both sides until golden brown/crunchy. When finished, remove from oil with slotted spoon & allow to drain on towel
