Yum! Where did you get your recipe? I have never tried to make it from scratch.


Here is the one I use. I use gluten free bread crumbs and I also use garbanzo bean flour instead of canned beans. I obviously have to add more water to get it right.





1 (19 ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed

and drained

2 T. dried onion

1 pinch garlic powder,

1 T dried cilantro

1 teaspoon dried parsley

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup fine dry bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns

1 inch vegetable oil for frying



romaine, grapes, cucumber, tomato




Mash the garbanzo beans in a large bowl. Stir in the onion, garlic, cilantro, parsley cumin, turmeric, baking powder, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Do not be afraid to use your hands. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls; you should get 18 to 24. If the mixture does not hold together, add a little water.


Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Carefully drop the balls into the hot oil, and fry until brown. If you do not have a deep fryer, heat the oil in a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. You may need to adjust the heat slightly after the first couple of falafels, and be sure to turn frequently so they brown evenly.


Serve over salad
