Healthy Homemade Chickpea Falafel

Making your favorite middle eastern food just got easier.

These lightened-up chickpea patties get started on the stovetop and finished in the oven, giving them the crunchy outer layer usually achieved with deep-frying, only with less mess. They're wonderfully addictive on their own or as the main component of a simple pita sandwich, with parsley, cucumbers, cabbage, and yogurt sauce.
