Mung Bean Falafels

Mung Bean Falafels are just so much better than the chickpea version. These green Mung Bean Falafels are so funky and I loved the crunchy texture. I loved the process, because you have to sprout the mung beans first, but that is the coolest thing ever.  So one packet of mung beans yield enough for […]
