How to Make Crispy Falafels


  1. Combine first 12 ingredients in a food processor; pulse 6 times or until well blended (mixture will be wet).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spoon about 1/3 cup chickpea mixture per patty into pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  3. Warm up your pitas, you can spread them with hummus, tahinne or tzatziki. I like mine with hummus and loads of salad!
