Falafel and feta

Sorry about the lack of pictures! This meal was thrown together so quickly I honestly did not expect it to come out so well! This is a real fast but tasty way to do vegetarian. 

I saw a recipe for falafel on emerils website. He used fava beans and a fryer. I decided to use chick peas and bake them off. 
What you need: 
2 cans of chick peas
1 egg 
1/3 cup flour 
1/2 cup chopped parsley 
1 lemon juiced and zested 
1/4 cup olive oil 
Salt and pepper
Crumbled tomato basil feta 
1 cup Greek yogurt 
1 tbsp olive oil 
Red pepper flakes 
Preheat your oven 400 degrees. In a food processor add olive oil and chick peas. Once blended add the lemon juice, salt pepper, parsley, egg and flour. I used an icecream scoop to drop batter on a pan before putting in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes. 
While the falafel is baking mix together the feta, oil, red pepper flakes, lemon zest and yogurt. You can use the food processor if you want a creamier texture. 
Top your falafel with the feta and serve with a warm piece of flat bread. Enjoy!
