Here is a tasty take on my favorite Mediterranean dish, falafel. Serve this with a creamy tahini garlic sauce, a variety of salads, and you have a healthy meal. For a more heart healthy version you can also bake your fritters. It is easy to make, and definitely fun to eat.

  • ½cup fresh cilantro leaves, plus more for serving
  • ½cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1clove garlic, finely chopped

1. In a food processor, puree 1 can of the lentils with the cilantro, parsley, garlic, and cumin until nearly smooth. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the breadcrumbs, the remaining can of lentils, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Form into sixteen ½-inch-thick patties.

2. In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, lightly mash the cabbage with the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper; set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, crushed red pepper, and ¼ cup water.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, cook the patties until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side, adding the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet for the second batch.

4. Dividing evenly, top each pita with the patties, cabbage mixture, yogurt sauce, and the additional cilantro and crushed red pepper.

  1. Recipe for the lentil-carrot patties is not correct. Calls for 1 can of lentils in the list (no carrots in the list) and in the directions, calls for a 2nd can of lentils…I would love to see the correct recipe ingredients.

    1. Dear Brenda I do apologize seems I was reading 2 recipes at the same time. Corrections have been made.
