What Should Tallahassee Cook? – Slow Cooker Falafel

Check out this Slow Cooker Falafel recipe by Stephanie O’Dea that is quickly becoming a family favorite in our house.

As you can see above, it looks fantastic. It also tastes great and is super easy to make. Here are a couple of suggestions I have that differ from the original recipe.

  1. Just dump everything into a food processor. There is no need to mash the garbanzos with a fork. They blend nicely in the food processor with everything else all at once.
  2. A quick greek yogurt sauce is wonderful on the wrap. Fresh dill is better, but dry dill works too. I also prefer lime juice over lemon in the sauce.
  3. Back off the amount of cayenne pepper to 1/8 teaspoon max unless you want a big spicy kick. For some reason 1/4 teaspoon was VERY spicy when I first tried these.

 

 

What Should Tallahassee Cook? – Buffalo Chicken Chili

Buffalo Chicken Chili by Hungry Girl

Chili is good. Buffalo style chicken wings are good. Neither is particularly great for my health. My wife is on a health kick lately, so my health is benefiting. We tried out Hungry Girl’s Buffalo Chicken Chili recipe last week. I was skeptical to start and I was even more skeptical after the food was done cooking in the slow cooker. But, I’m happy to report that this ended up as a very good chicken chili recipe that I will make and eat again. If you’re trying to eat better, love wings and chili then I suggest you check it out for dinner one night soon.
