How to Make White Bean Falafels with Chimchurri Yogurt Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl add all your chimchurri ingredients except the yogurt, and mix well. Place in a mini chopper or food processor and pulse till smooth.
    Add your yogurt. Mix thoroughly and place in fridge till ready to use.
  2. Open your can of cannellini beans; drain and rinse.
    Add the rest of your chimchurri ingredients. Using your favorite *masher*, mash the living daylights out of the beans. Take out all your frustrations I say!! You can leave partial pieces of beans, they look really pretty!
    Add your yogurt! Taste for seasoning, and set in fridge to chill!
  3. Over medium heat, warm tortilla's in an skillet or oven, till they are ready and warmed up. Set on a plate and set aside!
  4. Using your hands or an ice cream scoop, scoop out uniform pieces of falafel mixture and form into patties. Dredge lightly in flour and place on plate. In a medium skillet heat your olive oil till to medium-high heat.
  5. Cook for a couple of minutes on one side, flip over and evenly brown on the other side. When nicely golden on both sides, remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.
  6. Assemble your falafel's by starting with your tortilla's, add your chimchurri yogurt sauce, your veggies of choice, then 1 falafel cut in half. Fold over, secure with toothpick if desired and enjoy!!
