Baked Falafel Salad

This recipe will leave even the hungriest lunch eaters satisfied. Tender, baked falafel are wrapped in lettuce and loaded with a rainbow of vegetables, and then dunked into the complex flavors of the Mint Tahini Sauce. If mint doesn’t appeal to you, feel free to substitute any fresh herb that does, such as basil, cilantro, parsley, or tarragon.

Onions: Very similar to garlic, onions have antimicrobial sulfur compounds that expel unfriendly pathogens from the liver. Onions have a disinfecting quality for the liver, keeping it from becoming inflamed. They also improve the temperature control or “thermostat” of the liver so it can heat and cool itself properly.

Parsley: Its phytochemicals have anti-troublemaker effects that dislodge poisons and catapult them out of your liver. The intense green pigment in parsley contains an alkaloid specifically for liver rejuvenation; tissue in the liver improves when exposed to these alkaloid compounds. Parsley has a purging effect on gallbladder sludge, though not on gallstones. Its phytochemical compounds settle at the bottom of the gallbladder, where the sludge lies, to do their good.

Baked Falafel Salad With Mint Tahini Sauce

Ingredients:
3 cups cooked chickpeas
1 cup roughly diced red onion
4 garlic cloves
½ cup loosely packed parsley
½ cup loosely packed cilantro
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons cumin
2 heads of butter lettuce (optional, see Tips)

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS
½ cucumber, sliced
½ cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
½ cup shredded red cabbage
½ cup shredded carrot

MINT TAHINI SAUCE
1 cup diced zucchini
½ Medjool date, pitted
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh dill
2 tablespoons fresh mint
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup water

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place half of the chickpeas into the bottom of the food processor. Then add the diced onion, garlic cloves, parsley, cilantro, and sea salt. On top, add the remaining chickpeas. Pulse all of the ingredients together in the food processor until they are well combined.

Line two baking trays with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop out the chickpea mixture, shape it into balls, and place them on the baking trays spaced 2 inches apart. Gently pat the tops of the balls to flatten them into a falafel shape. Bake the falafel for 35 to 40 minutes, until the tops are turning golden brown and they are firm on the outside while still tender in the middle. Handle them gently!

To make the Mint Tahini Sauce, blend all of the ingredients together until smoothly combined. Serve the falafel on top of a salad of butter lettuce or in individual butter lettuce cups topped with veggies and Mint Tahini Sauce.

Makes 2 to 4 servings

Tips:

* These falafel can also be served in a gluten-free, corn-free tortilla of your choice.

* If you’d prefer to keep this dish completely fat-free, skip the Mint Tahini Sauce and try pairing the falafel with the Spicy Lime “Vinaigrette” on page 388 of Liver Rescue instead.
