Best Ever Falafel (vegetarian) / Najbolji Falafel ikad (vegetarijanski)

I know I’ve written about Falafel very recently and the basic recipe I’ve provided is really, really good. This one, however is excellent. The finished product is the most delicious Falafel ever. There are a couple of secret ingredients here, though, like miso paste and shredded hard cheese. And you could definitely veganize the recipe by using a vegan cheese option. Anyhow, if you’re a Falafel fan be sure to give this variation a try!

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp smoked paprika (0.03 EUR)

½ cup tahini – I used homemade (0.67 EUR)

METHOD:

Soak the chickpeas overnight in cold water. By the next day they will double in size, so wash them and drain thoroughly, then add to your food processor. Pulse until chickpeas are finely ground down, making sure to scrape the sides of your food processor a couple of times as you go, all to ensure uniform consistency.

Once the chickpeas are ground down, add in the rest of the ingredients and pulse to combine. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop the batter into even small balls and spread them up on a prepared tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Serve with a nice salad and something saucy, like a homemade Tzatziki sauce.

Znam da sam relativno nedavno pisala o falafelu i osnovni recept koji sam objavila je stvarno super. Međutim, ovaj je božanstven. Ovo ovdje je po meni najnajukusniji falafel ikad. U ovom receptu ima par tajnih sastojaka, kao što su miso pasta i ribani tvrdi sir. I mislim da ga definitivno možete i veganizirati tako da umjesto običnog sira upotrijebite neku vegansku verziju. U svakom slučaju, ako ste ljubitelj falafela, toplo vam preporučam da isprobate recept u nastavku.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 25 falafela / 0,81 kn po kom / 20,32 kn za sve)

1 šalica sirovog slanutka (5,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,15 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice dimljene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ šalice tahinija – ja sam upotrijebila domaći (5,00 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

1 žlica svijetle miso paste (1,50 kn)

1 šalica fino ribanog tvrdog sira (6,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Slanutak preko noći ostavite namočen u hladnoj vodi. Do sljedećeg će se dana udvostručiti u volumenu, pa ga onda ocijedite i dobro isperite pod mlazom tekuće vode. Ubacite nabubreni slanutak u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ga skroz ne usitnite. Par puta također i postružite stranice multipraktika kako bi ste imali jednoličnu teksturu.

Kada je slanutak smljeven, ubacite u multipraktik i sve ostale sastojke, te pulsirajte da se sve sjedini. U međuvremenu zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Smjesu grabite u male kuglice koje raširite po pripremljenom protvanu. Pecite 20-25 minuta, dok falafeli ne budu hrskavi i zlatno-smeđi. Poslužite ih sa nekom lijepom salatom i finim umakom, kao na primjer domaćim Tzatzikijem.
