I wanted to share our falafels with you all because they have been a huge hit around here, and I thought you may enjoy them as well!
1 can of rinsed chickpeas
1 small onion roughly chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 tbsp flour (wheat or GF)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup panko bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying
Add everything to a food processor and pulse until all ingredients (except the bread crumbs) are well combined, but not completely smooth. I used my vitamix blender and it worked very well, I used the lowest setting and mashed everything together using the tamper.
Form into balls or patties by hand, and roll them in the bread crumbs.
Fry them until the outside is golden brown. Bake them for about 10-15 minutes at 375F.
For SOS free falafels, omit the salt and skip the frying! A much healthier option!
Toss them into a salad, or eat them for lunch in a wrap. They are a great alternative to meat and can be eaten hot or cold.
Enjoy my friends!
