Falafel sadwich with Garlic Sauce- they are broken up on purpose. The salad on the pita bread is Fattoush! Falafel Sandwich before broken up (OK the falafels were a little over-cooked! Falafels! (littel too browned but tasted GREAT!!!!!!!) FALAFEL RECIPE: INGREDIENTS: 1 (15 or 19 ounce)can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained 1 med/large onion chopped 1/4 cup fresh (has to be fresh not dried) coriander/cilantro (same thing)(chopped) 1/4 cup FRESH (has to be fresh not dried) parsley (chopped) 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 egg 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon salt 1 dash pepper 1 pinch cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 cup dry bread crumbs (have to be fine store bought ones) canola/corn/vegetable oil for deep frying DIRECTIONS: In a large bowl MASH chickpeas until thick and pasty with fork or potatoe masher.. don't use a blender, as the consistency will be too thin you want it pasty...set aside for while you. PUT: In a blender, process onion, fresh chopped parsley, fresh chopped corianer/cilantro and garlic until smooth. REMOVE from blender and pour in to the mashed chickpeas and mix well...starting to look and smell yuuummmy!. SET ASIDE! IN A SMALL BOWL:combine egg, ground cumin, ground coriander, salt, pepper, cayenne, lemon juice and baking powder and olive oil. (YES it is correct if it is foaming...LOL..you are doing it right!) THEN STIR THIS INTO chickpea mixture . Slowly add bread crumbs a little at a time until mixture is not sticky but will hold together in patty-like balls ; add more or less bread crumbs, as needed. (I usually use the whole amount here) Form into balls and then flatten slightly into patties.) Heat 1 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat or safer to use deep fryer (whatever you have on-hand) . Deep-Fry patties in hot oil (make sure it is hot!) until brown on both sides. DO NOT OVERCOOK. Just brown they cook VERY fast so keep an eye! I FIND this is enough for 2 adults and maybe a litte to spare but doubling the recipe makes enough for 5ish. IT is amazing... SERVE ON PITA BREAD as a sandwich and garnish with fattoush (recipe coming up in next post and the special garlic sauce) u] INGREDIENTS FOR AMAZING GARLIC SAUCE!:Goes by eye and taste...[/u] 5 Cloves of garlic...minced Canola/corn/vegetable oil (NOT OLIVE) 1 Tbsp. lemon juice (NOT a lot) 2 or However you like it heaping teaspoons of HELMANS real mayonnaise (or a real mayonnaise) not Miracle Whip make sure it is real mayo and man it is AMAZING worth running to the store for the MAYO. INSTRUCTIONS: Place garlic, 1Tbsp. Lemon juice, pinch of salt, Mayo in the BLENDER! ...THEN as it is blending slowley add the oil until it is creamy!!! IF you like more garlic Add it but for this amount 5 is NOT too much so ADD THEM...more if you like too but try it first. THEN if you find you need more oil...add it..same with the Mayonnaise...you will nkow by taste...it will be a nice creamy sauce and it smells, tastes, and lokks delicious and like a restaurant sauce!! THEN it is finished let sit for a little bit...good served room temp...but needs to be chilled in the fridge for leftovers...Shake before using...I am telling you I cannot express how GOOOD this is!!!
