It is not my first try of falafel because I love it, I had already proposed the recipe of falafel classic. This time, I wanted to test a version in any other, a version of falafel with herbs, made from parsley and spinach (also good because I had bought a bunch of spinach at the market without leaving with a clear idea of what I was going to make one !). I must also say that I have a little lightened the recipe, exit the frying, a simple go back to the stove and the falafels finish baking in the oven (she is not beautiful the life ?!). Good but as I know that you are greedy, you can sprinkle generously these falafel sauce tahina which you can find the recipe here.

These falafel with herbs are also an excellent way to eat spinach to children, in a form that is playful and full of flavors. And in addition, it makes a complete meal served with a good salad of the season… yes I know I’m a super girl that you concoct super meal… ok I have the right to dream a little anyway, right ?!
