The Finale: Breakfast Falafel

For the big Day 12 Finale, I wanted to do something completely different so, breakfast falafels it is!  We love eating falafel for dinner but they actually make a great breakfast and a delicious combo with the egg.

It’s not hard to make, and it is awesome for any vegetarian friends.

INGREDIENTS: 

  • Eggs
  • 2 cups chickpeas (you can make fresh or use canned)
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1tbsp 2tbsp of minced garlic
  • 1/4small white onion, finely diced
  • 1tsp salt
  • Naan bread

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Take cooked chick peas and put into a medium sized mixing bowl (the flatter the bottom of the bowl the better)
  3. Add garlic, onion, paprika and salt and mash with a potato masher. (I like to mash until most of the chickpeas are completely broken down but there are still a few chunks.
  4. Use hands to form into balls and place on a greased cookie tray.  Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, turning once at ten minutes*
    NOTE* These are super delicate so be careful when you turn them!
  5. Perfectly poach 2 eggs (read how to do that here!) and place into a bowl of warm water once done (this is just so they stop cooking and you can put them down while you finish everything!)
  6. With about 2 minutes left place your naan in the oven to crisp up a bit, once done rip into small pieces, place eggs on top and crumble the falafel on top.  Serve with a bit of hummus and sprinkled feta and enjoy!
