Put beans, carrots, and garlic in a food processor and chop. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Grease a jelly roll or similar pan. Form falafel into half-dollar-sized patties and place on pan. Brush olive oil on top of falafel. Bake at 425 degrees 10-14 minutes, turning once. (I generally do 7 minutes on each side, but the original recipe says 10 minutes.)
Serve on pitas with vegetables and a yogurt dip of your choice.
I don't know how I took this picture sideways or how to straighten it out. I'm not so computer literate. In the photo, the tahini dressing is actually over my favorite couscous recipe.
I was looking for a dairy-free tzatziki dressing to go with the falafel a couple weeks back as two of our guests had milk allergies. This dressing was exactly what I was looking for. In fact, I preferred it over the Tzatziki.
I had a two-fold reason for visiting Hoover's Essential Health, previously Economy Foods. I was looking for a cheaper grocery store in general, one that offered a larger variety of gluten- and dairy-free products given that more and more we're finding friends and family with such allergies. By visiting their website, I learned about their bakery and their deli for lunch. So then, I knew I just had to go so I could review dining there, too.
Peacefood Cafe was recommended to us by Leigh at Marvelous Kiddo. She certainly has good taste! We loved our experience at the restaurant. It was amazing that there was always a line for a table during our entire lunch. Maybe that doesn't mean much in crowded New York City. Still, I've always maintained the belief that people being willing to wait for a table is a good thing.
