Thursday, March 15, 2012 a Falafel Date

Adapted from Eat, Live, Run as show on PBS

1 Can Chickpeas (15-oz)
½ Red Onion, Minced
3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1 Serano Pepper, Minced
3 Tbsp + 2 tsp of Olive Oil (divided)
½ tsp Cumin
2 Tbsp Cilantro
1 tsp Sea Salt
Juice of 1 Lemon
¼ Cup Greek Yogurt
½ Cup Breadcrumbs
1 Egg White

In a food processor, combine the Chickpeas, 2 tsp of Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and Yogurt.

Blend well and scoop out into a large bowl. Set aside.

Heat up 1 tbsp Olive Oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Once hot, add the Onions and Jalapeno and sauté for about six minutes or until tender. Add the Garlic and sauté for another minute until toasty and fragrant. Add Cumin and Cilantro and mix well.

Add onion mixture to the Chickpea mixture and stir well to combine. Add the salt, Egg White and Breadcrumbs and mix well.

Heat the remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil in the same skillet as before. Form patties with the Chickpea mixture and fry for about three-four minutes per side, until golden and crunchy. 

Drain on paper towels.

Serve Falafel Burgers in warm whole wheat pitas (or Tortilla's from Central Market!) with Greek Yogurt, Siracha, Spinach and sliced Red Onion.
