Falafel (Gf, V)

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (400g) cooked beans – garbanzo beans are best but if you only have a different type of bean, that should work
  • Garlic to taste
  • Cumin to taste
  • Coriander or cilantro to taste
  • Parsley to taste
  • 2 – 5 T flour of choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil – to cook
  • Optional chopped nuts – walnuts, almonds, etc

Special tools

  • Food processer
  • Large pan
  • Spatula
  • Paper towel
  • Plate

Steps:

  1. In a food processer, put the beans, garlic, cumin, coriander or cilantro, and parsley.
  2. Blend until beans are quite mushy but there are still some lumps. You don’t want to blend it too much or else it will turn into a humus like consistency.
  3. Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper, and optionaly the nuts.
  4. Roll falafel mixture into balls about the size of a walnut.
  5. In a large pan, heat up enough oil so that if you put a ball in, it would go up about 1/4 of the ball.
  6. Once the oil is heated up, put 4 – 5 balls into the oil.
  7. Once crispy on one side, continue flipping over until all of the te outside is crispy.
  8. Place on a paper towel on top of a plate to drain all excess oil.
  9. Cook all falafel like you did the first few.
