1 onion, coarsely chopped

1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 cups cooked chickpeas

1 tablespoon tahini

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon unrefined salt

2 tablespoons dried parsley

2 tablespoons flour

Pinch of cayenne



Process the onion in a food processor until finely chopped. Add the other ingredients and process until chopped but not pureed.

Measure a 1/3 cup of the mixture at a time and roll into large balls. Place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes; turn the balls over and bake for another 15 minutes.



Falafel can simply be served with a salad or steamed vegetables.  This recipe can be made into smaller balls or even patties if you prefer.
