Falafels are easy to make and recipes vary. This one includes using a food processor and coarsely blending the following
2 cups soaked organic garbanzo beans
1 cup organic GMO free corn
1 red onion
5 cloves of garlic
1 cup chopped parley and/or cilantro
1 tsp cumin powder
1 whole green chili ( i usually add 2)
Few springs of mint
Sea salt to taste
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon chickpea flour ( or corn flour) to bind everything together.
Once the coarse dough is together, form small patties and pan fry in olive oil.
Assemble the sandwich with a layer of hummus, veggies, salt and pepper, feta and top with falafel patties. Yum!
