Easy Falafel Patties
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, well drained
1⁄2 onion, minced
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon cumin
3⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
3⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place chickpeas in a large bowl and mash with a fork until coarsely mashed. Or pulse in a food processor until chopped.
Combine chickpeas with onion, flour, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and egg, mashing together to combine. Add parsley and cilantro.
Shape mixture into 2-inch balls or 1-inch-thick patties and bake in oven for 15 minutes, or until crisp. Falafel can also be fried in oil for about 5–6 minutes on each side.
Stuff falafel into a pita bread with some sliced tomatoes and lettuce and top it off with a bit of tahini, vegan tzatziki, or hummus for a Middle Eastern sandwich.
