Beet Falafel Patties
I am loving these Beet Falafel Patties. They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and flavor…plus, they are baked not fried! You can eat them on a bed of greens or in a pita.

Yield: 8 large patties

Place pizza stone in oven and preheat together to 425 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients in food processor until completely combined.
Form batter into large, burger-sized, patties onto a piece of parchment paper. Spray the top of each patty.
Using a pizza peel, slip parchment paper with patties onto pizza stone.
Bake 10 minutes, flip each patty and lightly spray with olive oil. Bake an additional 10 minutes.
Enjoy with Vegan Green Goddess dressing using cilantro in leiu of dill.
Remove leaves and stems, place beets on parchment paper, add 1/4 cup water, and fold into a packet. Wrap packet again with foil. Cook on grill over high heat, so that beets steam inside packets, for 90 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool, peel and cut into small pieces.
