- 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 Ket123 from Perfect size I purchased this item for its smaller size for everyday use. I own a large food processor which is rarely used. This seemed to be a a good idea and I’m glad I did. The unit is quite powerful and durable.Date published: 2018-11-10Rated 5 out of 5 by phooey from Perfect Size I bought this chopper so I didn't haves to dig out my large cuisinart for quick jobs. This equipment chops parmesean, herbs, onions etc. quickly. I particularly like it for herbs which are a real pain to chop by hand.Date published: 2018-11-09Rated 2 out of 5 by James K from Mediocre We have had issues with the lid beaming stuck, the lower carfe lugs binding in their lock slots on the lid.Date published: 2018-11-06Rated 5 out of 5 by Toby2 from Delivers big results, yet compact. Have had about a month now. Quick and easy to use and clean up is a snap. Very happy with my purchase.Date published: 2018-10-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Olily from The little motor that could can:) I bought the Cuisinart Elite Collection 4-cup a month ago and I have been delighted with it since. It does a great job of grinding and chopping. It is the perfect size for me. Ok glad I got it!Date published: 2018-10-16Rated 5 out of 5 by tdxson from Perfect size and utility. I bought this machine before moving into a smaller apartment and was worried that the small size might get in the way of me making the dishes I had been making previously in a bigger kitchen. I was quite wrong, and am glad to say that the grinder/chopper has improved my cooking ability greatly.Date published: 2018-10-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Drewster from Easy to use Much less complex than earlier versions.
