- Panfried Falafel with Cumin and Garlic
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the chickpeas and cook until slightly softened but still very firm in the center, about 10 minutes. Drain the chickpeas and let cool slightly.
In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, onion, garlic and parsley and process until coarsely pureed. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the baking powder, cumin, the 3/4 tsp. salt and the red pepper flakes. Refrigerate the mixture until cold, about 1 hour.
In a large nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm about 1 Tbs. of the olive oil. With wet hands, shape 1/4-cup portions of the chickpea mixture into patties about 3 inches wide. Place 3 or 4 patties at a time in the pan and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, 4 to 6 minutes total. Repeat to shape and cook the remaining falafel, adding more olive oil to the pan as needed. Serve immediately. Makes 12 to 14 patties; serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarthaSC from Just right. I read reviews for similar models and compared size and features before I picked Cuisinart's Elite chopper. I have a food processor, but I wanted something for smaller jobs. For me this is the right chopper. I love how easy it is to use and I love how light it is.Date published: 2018-09-12Rated 5 out of 5 by rickn47 from Best in it's class I bought this to replace the exact one that wore out after quite a few years of constant use.
