Falafel + Greek Chicken

The studio I work in is at the bottom of an apartment building and one of the perks is free parking in a garage. The building's garbage room is in the garage and makes this chirp sound that has annoyed me for three years. My boyfriend walked out to the car with me the other day and upon hearing said chirp said "what a cute chirp sound." This was an awesome reminder that it's all about perspective. Now when I walk past the garbage room, I think of the "cute chirp" and it makes it less annoying. I vow to try to make this more of a habit in my life.

Recipe of the Day: Falafel and Greek Chicken (4 servings)

1.5 hours total


2 cans of garbanzo beans

1/2 onion diced

1 potato peeled and diced

1 egg

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp salt

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 cup olive oil for frying

Mix everything together in a bowl until fully combined and get rid of any large chunks with a fork. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or until mix is no longer runny. Use the oil to cover bottom of pan and make small patties with your hands. Cook on medium/high heat until browned, flip and repeat on second side. I say 1 cup of olive oil because the oil runs out quickly. Dry on a paper towel and serve with dill dip or tzatziki.

Greek Chicken

30 minutes

1 chicken breast cut into cutlets

1/4 cup green pimento olives diced

2 tbsp flour

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp garlic powder

1 pinch of cayenne pepper

Mix flour and cayenne pepper in bowl. Lightly coat chicken with bowl contents then transfer to pan with oil, lemon juice, and garlic. Cover pan and cook on medium heat. Serve with olives on top.
