Here is a recipe that I have stumbled across, and I just love it!
While humming your national anthem (optional), throw the lot in a
food processor or the like, and let 'er rip, until all the stuff has
become yellowy matter.
- 1-1/2 cup cooked chickpeas (cooked from dry, or canned, drained)
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh parsley leaves
- 1 Tablespoon fresh lemom juice
- 1 Tablespoon minced onion
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
Then, the tantalizing task of forming this substance into balls.
Just small ones, like cookies.
Put on a non-stick or greased (hey, whatever you're into) pan, and
bake in the oven at around 500 degrees fahrenhiet, flipping once,
until golden brown.
Once they have cooled, go ahead and get some pita bread (I like
using the big ones).
-- No humming is required for this step.--
Slice a slot in the pitas, and then take a few falafel balls, and
smear them on the inside of these forever talked about pitas.
Garnish with lettuce, sliced radishes, parsley, and tahini sauce,
well, those are my favorites.
Add whatever you want, I'm not going to know!
