DIRECTIONS

  • Falafel:
  • In food processor place onion, parsley, and garlic. Pulse until finely minced.
  • Add drained chickpeas and pulse just until they are mashed, but not a paste You want very small chunks of beans.
  • Transfer to a bowl and mix in the egg white, cumin, cilantro, salt, pepper, oregano, cayenne, lemon juice, baking powder, and olive oil.
  • Stir in the bread crumbs.
  • Chill for 15 minutes to allow the crumbs to soak up the liquids and the patties will hold together better.
  • Heat a small amount of oil in a nonstick frying pan, or spray with nonstick spray. Heat pan over medium-low.
  • Form patties from 1/8 cup of falafel mixture. These are very soft so keep them more rounded, as they will flatten slightly when turned. Fry patties until golden brown on each side.
  • Tzatziki Sauce:
  • In a small mixing bowl blend together the yogurt, sour cream, grated cucumber, garlic powder, sugar, and dill weed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill. This is best if made a couple hours in advance.
  • Serve on pita bread with sauce spooned over.
