Sweet Potato Falafels
with Garlic Hummus
Welcome to March’s Secret Recipe Club Post! It’s a little strange how excited I get when I find out what blog I’ve been assigned, and this month was no different. This month I was given Isabelle’s Crumb Blog and I was hooked from the moment I saw her intro. This “coffee-chugging, booty-shaking, bargain-shopping, cookbook-collecting, photo-snapping, trucker-swearing, farmers-market-loving self-taught cook with a Mister and two cats to feed” chick has a blog chock full of recipes, for which I can overlook her being a cat person. I want to say I pinned close to 30 recipes are my first go thru, before finally narrowing things down to the top 5. In the end it became a battle between Saag Paneer and Sweet Potato Falafels, with the inability to find any paneer being the deciding factor. I loved that the falafel recipe was really three recipes in one, though in the end I only did two of the three. I have attempted, and failed, at making falafels before but these held together amazingly well making it super easy to fry them up.
I served these without the pita per husband’s request along with some vinegar carrots, cucumber, greek yogurt, and (of course) the garlic hummus from the original post. They were delicious and as a bonus heated up rather well the next day for lunch! Needless to say another awesome recipe thanks to SRC.
