*I* liked it. I was the only one.
The Husband I could have guessed. He doesn’t do other cultures very well (unless it’s Asian or Italian). But I could have bet Things 1 & 2 would like it! They love chick peas!
But no. And now I have a ton of falafel for leftovers only I will eat. Not sayin’ that’s a bad thing, only … it’s a lot of leftovers.
From Healthy Homestyle Cooking
2 15 oz can of chick peas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup grated onion
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1 egg white
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
dash of ground red pepper
Put everything into a food processor until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Cover and refrigerate for half an hour.
Shape mixture into small patties. Not kidding when I say small. I had them larger at first and they all fell apart. Spray an unheated pan with no-stick spray. Heat it over medium heat. Add the patties and cook until they are crispy golden brown, about three minutes each side.
I served it with the sour cream sauce (thanks, Gillian!) and some lettuce, and wrapped in some flatbread. I suspect it would also taste pretty good in some pita.
So, enjoy? 🙂
