Falafel Patties

A disaster in the making -- some ingredient or prep is off and all that is made is a disgusting, unfryable mush -- at least in our Winter/Sprint 2011 cooking session.


  • 16 oz can garbanzos
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup parsley, minced
  • pita bread, for serving


Mix all ingredients except parsley in a food processor or blender. Mix in parsley by hand. Lightly oil a skillet and heat on medium-low. Drop spoonfuls of falafel mixture onto lightly oiled skillet and brown.

Serve in pitas with lettuce, tomato, onion, radishes and creamy dressing.
