Falafel

Super Delish, and super good for you!!! Garbanzo Beans are beyond good for you! Try this recipe and see... eat them like a snack or make them the main dish ... Serve them over mashed potatoes and pour some gravy.... or stick them in a French Roll of Hoogie and make a sandwich.  Traditionally they are served in a pita with fresh lettuce, tomato, and a Yogurt Sauce.

FALAFEL

1 Can Garbanzo Beans, Drained
3 Cups Fresh Spinach
1/2 Onion, chopped
