Falafel 2
From: Suzanne Way

  • 1 19 oz can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro (if you dislike cilantro, just double the parsley)
  • 2 tbsp. chopped onion
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder.
Combine all ingredients except baking pwoder in a food processor
& process until the texture of ground nuts.
Add baking soda & pulse a couple times.
Form into small patties and fry until golden brown.
(Traditionally, they are deep-fried; I do mine in a non-stick pan).

Serve with Sesame Sauce:
Whisk 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup water, 2 tbsp. tahini (sesame paste), salt & hot pepper sauce to taste until smooth.
