Non-mushy falafel! 😋
Falafel is a superstar in plant-based cooking, but this seemingly simple dish is kind of hard to nail down in terms of texture. One simple trick to step up your falafel game, and to say goodbye to the mushiness, is to use dry chickpeas instead of canned. Canned chickpeas is definitely practical but it just doesn’t deliver the same flavor and texture. Soaked 24 hours in water, the dry chickpeas hydrate and soften. It is not even necessary to boil them, so it is not an added effort, you just need to decide a day before that you will be making falafels. The rest of the recipe is remarkably simple, and it is on the blog now.
