Okara Falafel Recipe!

Okara Falafel Recipe using Soy Pulp from your homemade Soymilk! I was driving when I thought about making Falafels out of Okara (soy pulp you get when you make soymilk). I thought I was a genius when I came up with the idea. Then I went home and typed "Okara Falafel" on internet; sure enough there were many of them. Here is the recipe I came up with after reviewing many different recipes.

You will need:
  • 2 cups of Okara
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 3/4 cup of wholewheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • Oil for frying
1. Mix all the ingredients except the oil in a large bowl.

2. Heat 2 inches of oil to 350 degrees F.

3. Scoop the mixture with a dinner spoon and drop them into the oil one at a time.

4. Fry them for 4 to 7 minute.

The result was great! I tried hummus, sweet chili sauce, and tonkatsu sauce for dipping, and all of them were pretty good. I liked sweet chili sauce dipping better than others! Please let me know what you think about the recipe! I am thinking about adding Hijiki and Carrots next time to make it more like Ganmodoki.

Please leave me a comment and tell me how you liked the recipe! Please try out my other Okara Recipes also!
