“These falafels taste amazingly like the real thing. They're made with black soybeans instead of chickpeas, so they're low in carbs and high in protein and fiber.”

  7. NOTE 1: Canned black soybeans are available at some health food and low-carb specialty stores. I purchase mine from Eden Foods online store (www.edenfoods.com/store).
  8. NOTE 2: Xanthan gum is a low-carb thickener available in powder form. I use it to thicken soups, stews, and gravies, and to add body to low-carb baked goods. It's available at a number of online low-carb vendors. I get mine from Authentic Foods (www.authenticfoods.com).
