Fava Bean Falafel Pitas With Cucumber-Tomato Salad
Falafel is normally made with chickpeas, so this fresh fava bean falafel recipe is a delicious same-but-different take on what you might be used to. The rest of the falafel ingredients are pretty traditional: the favas are combined with garlic, cilantro, lemon zest, parsley, and shallot, plus cumin and coriander. Those are then shaped into balls, toasted in a skillet and finished in the oven for a healthier, baked take on falafel. Tuck into warmed pita pockets with a cucumber-tomato salad and serve with iced mint tea or light beer.
