It really doesn’t get any better than homemade falafel fresh out of the oil! But making falafel can be a bit of a pain and I find myself wanting to just go out and buy falafel or use that boxed mix to make them at home. Instead of using that sodium-filled falafel mix from a box, I’ve created my own easy recipe for homemade dried falafel mix using garbanzo bean flour. The falafel mix is filled with the flavors of cumin, parsley, paprika, garlic, coriander, turmeric, and chili powder and it tastes good on just about anything.

Falafel-Crusted Chicken with Tahini Sauce

There’s nothing better than a juicy piece of chicken, especially with some serious crunch from the skin! For the Falafel-Crusted Chicken with Tahini Sauce, I drizzled the chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper then dipped it right in the dried falafel mix. It has some major flavor impact from the homemade dried falafel mix and cooking the chicken at a high temperature created the perfect crust. Inspired by the flavors of the mediterranean, I mixed together a quick and flavorful tahini sauce to drizzle over the chicken.

So not only can you make delicious falafel balls and crunchy chicken, you can practically dip anything in the homemade dried falafel mix so make a big batch! Instead of frying up your average croquette, try dipping leftover creamy mashed potatoes in homemade dried falafel mix for a new spin on the classic. These Falafel-Crusted Cheesy Potato Croquettes have a crunchy exterior and a creamy and cheesy mashed potato filling. Perfect as an appetizer or side dish!
