Ingredients
  • For Falafel:
  • 1/2 cup onion,diced
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into 1/2″ peices
  • 1 teaspoon tumeric, cumin, salt and pepper
  • 1 cup canned garbanzo beans ,rinsed well
  • 1/2 cup corn

  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumb, for coating**
  • For Serving:
  • Pita bread
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Cashew bits
Instructions
  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on a medium pan
  2. Sautee onion, celery, and spices till onions are goldent, and stirring occasionally, and add beans. This should take from 5-10 mintues.
  3. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and add to food processor along with peanuts and corn.
  4. Blend until a chunky dough is formed. Transfer to a large bowl, and fully incorporate flour. Your dough should be thick and ready to roll.
  5. Depending on the size you want, take dough and form a ball. Coat in bread crumbs.
  6. They are ready to fry! On heated pan with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, fry falafel, while rolling them around frequently. Add oil if needed. Keep rolling them around the pan for about 15 minutes, or until they are evenly golden brown and firmer.
  7. When done cooking, transfer to a paper towel to absorb some of the oil. These are best fresh, but f you have leftovers, you can always reheat them on the pan. When you are ready, enjoy your falafel on pita with fresh vegetables, make a lettuce wrap, or enjoy on a salad. There are many possibilities with these!
