I got a blender/food processor from my mom as an (early) birthday gift, as I was driven crazy by my former blender that didn’t do anything more than complain (even when doing smoothies). This though, has already exceeded all my expectations!
Tadaaaa here it is, it cost my mom 75€ and he will serve me for many many years (until I can afford a KitchenAid).
So today I improvised some falafel, this isn’t that traditional recipe but darn good:
– one can of chick peas
– 2 cloves of garlic
– 1 whole chili
– 1 small onion
– squeeze of lemon juice
– handfull of coriander (didn’t have fresh parsley at home)
– 5-6 big mint leaves
– 1 tsp of cumin
– 1 tbsp of paprica
– good pinch of salt
– 1,5 tbsp of flour
Chop roughly chili, garlic, onion and coriander (stalks and all). Drain chickpeas and dry off quickly. Add all ingredients to the food processor and blend, add flour and blend more. The consistency should be grainy not like a paste!
Form into small balls or patties and fry in a lot of oil (not olive oil) until browned and crispy.
I did it as an burger with avocado, tzatsiki, onion, cucumber, tomato and lettuce as garnish, yum!!
