Falafel - Traditional Recipe for Chickpea Falafel

Falafel - Traditional Recipe for Chickpea Falafel
In Israel, falafel stands are as numerous and plentiful as McDonalds here in the U.S. Falafel is the unofficial “national snack of Israel.” If only we had half as many falafel stands in the U.S. as we do McDonalds, I’d be a very happy girl. It’s a delicious form of fast food that is much lighter and better for your heart than burgers and fries. Falafel is a traditionally Arab food that has been adopted by Israeli Jews. So just what is the history of this tasty little fritter? When falafel is made the traditional way, is indeed a vegan food; it’s a great source of protein for people who have cut meat out of their diet. On my trip to Israel this past summer, one of the last food stops we made was for a falafel pita. Here’s my favorite way to make a falafel pita: start with a layer of hummus deep inside the pocket, then add the falafel, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. Here is my recipe for falafel, along with a few variations you can try. Food Processor Grapeseed Oil Non-Stick Skillet Related:  snacksHummusVegetables

Crash Hot Potatoes Man, do I love Australia. First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there. This is a family-friendly website. Anyway, I just love Australia. They’re so simple, it’s terrifying. For now, though, let’s take a chill pill and make Crash Hot Potatoes! The Cast of Characters: New Potatoes (or other small, round potato), Olive Oil, Kosher Salt, Black Pepper, and whatever herb you like. Begin by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make, and cook them until they’re fork-tender. Oh! Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan. This will mean the difference between the potatoes sticking and not sticking, so don’t be shy here. Or something. That’s it!

Estimating Realistic Startup Costs This article is part of our “Business Startup Guide” – a curated list of our articles that will get you up and running in no time! Businesses spend money before they ever open their doors. Startup expenses are those expenses incurred before the business is running. Use a startup worksheet to plan your initial financing. Startup expenses: These are expenses that happen before the beginning of the plan, before the first month. Timing is everything Some people are confused by the specific definition of startup expenses, startup assets, and startup financing. Don’t count expenses twice; they go in Startup or Profit and Loss, but not both. Expenses versus assets Many people can be confused by the accounting distinction between expenses and assets. Expenses are deductible against income, so they reduce taxable income.Assets are not deductible against income. What a company spends to acquire assets is not deductible against income. Another common misconception involves expensed equipment.
