falafel by joanie

This is a quick and easy recipe assuming you had the foresight to soak some chickpeas. Next time I'm going to try adding a bit of lemon juice to the batter.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried chickpeas, soaked overnight
  • 1 yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • oil for frying
20 pieces

Directions

Drain the chickpeas and pat dry.

Combine ingredients in a food processor and blend until crumbly, like bread crumbs. Set aside.

In a deep, narrow pot, heat about 2" oil over medium heat. When the temperature reaches 350ยบ, drop tablespoons of batter into the oil and cook in batches until golden brown.

Drain on a paper towel. Serve warm with tahini sauce, fresh veggies, and pitas.

30 minutes
