Moroccan Spice Blend
Almonds, sliced(ContainsTree Nut/Noix)
Vegetable Broth Concentrate
Wash and dry all produce.* Coarsely grate the carrots. Cut the tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Mince or grate the garlic. Roughly chop the parsley. Zest, then juice the lemon. Add the entire box of chickpeas and its liquid into a medium bowl. Using a fork or potato masher, coarsely mash until it sticks together.
Add the garlic, Moroccan spice blend, panko, half the grated carrot and half the parsley into the chickpeas. Season with salt and pepper. Stir together until the mixture is sticky and can be formed into a ball. Divide the falafel mixture into 6 portions. Form into balls, then flatten the balls into patties.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the patties.Cook until golden-brown, 3-4 min per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Meanwhile, bring a kettle of water to a boil. In a medium bowl, combine the couscous, broth concentrate, a pinch of turmeric and 3/4 cup salted boiling water. Cover and let stand for 5 min. (TIP: You can also bring 3/4 cup salted water to a boil in a small pot, then add the couscous to the water.)
Add the tomatoes, remaining carrot, remaining parsley, raisins and 2 tbsp lemon juice into the couscous. Season with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon zest and 2 tsp lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the couscous between plates. Top with the falafels and a dollop of lemon crema. Sprinkle with the almonds.
