Gluten Free Falafel using GoGo Quinoa Amaranth Flakes

No comments
A while ago I bought GoGo Quinoa's Amaranth Flakes at Winners.  To be honest, I don't know what it is exactly, but I know it is gluten free and it looks like something you can use multiple ways.  Amaranth is a high source of fibre and iron.  Check out the wikipedia explanation!

The box has a recipe for falafel, and I love falafel.  So I was excited to try this recipe as we already have a great recipe for a baked falafel from Today;s Parent.  I thought to share this one to compare.


This is what amaranth flakes look like


Ingredients:

1/3 Cup amaranth flakes
540 ml canned chickpeas
1 cup parsley
1 cup cilantro (I omitted out of preference)
4 garlic cloves
1 medium minced onion
1.5 tsp cumin
1.5 tsp paprika
1/4 cayenne pepper (I omitted out of preference)
4-6 tbsp of gluten free flour (We always use Kinnikinnick)

Directions:

1. Mix ingredients (we used a food processor) 

2. Form balls
3. Cook with some oil in a non stick pan, while flattening them out a bit.

Enjoy with some tahini sauce! (just add 2 part tahini, 1 part water, half part lemon juice and garlic powder paprika to taste)
