"Falafel is made with chickpeas and sometimes fava beans that are loaded with flavorful fresh herbs and seasonings which give them their famous rich green color and earthy spice. Crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside, this falafel recipe is packed with fresh herbs, garbanzo beans, and plenty of spices then shaped into balls and pan-fried until perfectly crisp and ultra-tender. They’re then fried to a crisp golden brown with a tender, soft interior. Falafel is a widely popular recipe, most notably in the Middle East where it’s enjoyed as breakfast, lunch, dinner, and as a fried snack. "
