From the Kitchen of COOK-A-THON SHOW

Category: Vegetarian & Vegan
Servings: 6
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Recipe Ingredients

1 cup dried garbanzo beans, soaked in water to cover overnight and drained
1 cup dried shelled fava beans, soaked overnight and drained
1/2 cup scallions
3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1 cup water
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 Tbs. salt
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Oil for deep-frying

Recipe Directions

Run the drained garbanzo beans, fava beans and scallions through the fine blade on your meat grinder or in your food processor. Blend in all the remaining ingredients and let the mixture stand for 1 hour. Form into little patties 1/3 inch thick and 1-1/2 inches round. Or, you can form them into balls the size of walnuts. Deep-fry in 375 degree oil until toasty brown and crunchy on the outside, about 4 minutes.

Fill pita bread with Falafel, sliced tomatoes, sliced onion, lettuce or tabouli salad (kisir in Turkey) and yogurt or tahini sauce.
