How to Do

Falafel is a quintessential Middle Eastern street food. Crispy fried balls made from mashed chickpeas, onions, garlic, herbs and seasonings. They are commonly served with hummus or inside a pita bread, but are deliciously versatile.

Utensils: food processer (or blender), large pot, spider ladles (or slotted spoon)

Suggested Pairing: tahini paste, pita bread, vegetables, hummus




Add the chickpeas, onion, garlic, cilantro, parsley, cumin, coriander, baking powder, salt, pepper, flour and red pepper flakes to a food processor. Puree until the mixture is mostly smooth but it does not need to be completely smooth. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.



Add about 3” of oil to a large pot or deep sided pan and bring the temperature to 350 degrees.



Form the falafel mixture into balls (a 1 oz. cookie scoop will work well for this) and place into the hot oil gently. Fry for about 2 minutes, gently rotate the balls and continue frying until the balls are fully brown in color.



Remove from the oil with a spider ladle or slotted spoon and place on a paper towel to drain.


STEP 5: 

That's it! Add it to your salads, on top of hummus, on your salads. Or enjoy them as are.
