Falafel Burgers

We love falafel. We love burgers. There’s an obvious solution here – and it’s so tasty.

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 small onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Canola oil for frying

1. Put the chickpeas, onion, garlic, parsley, cilantro, cumin, salt, pepper, water and lemon juice into food processor and pulse until combined but still a bit chunky. Add the flour and pulse a few more times.
2. Transfer into a mixing bowl and add 1/2 cup bread crumbs, or more if needed.
3. Roll the mixture into balls and flatten with your hands to make a patty.
4. In a shallow skillet, heat about 1/2 inch of canola oil until it’s hot. Fry the falafel for a few minutes on each side on medium high heat until golden brown and crunchy.
5. Make a falafel burger with tahini, tomato, cucumber and pickles, or serve in pita with tzatziki sauce.
