1, 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped cilantro or 1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 small shallot
1 garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Add chickpeas, cilantro, shallot, garlic, salt, cumin, and flour to a food processor and pulse just until the mixture is broken up with no big chunks – you may need to scrap the sides to ensure all of the ingredients are combined. The mixture should hold together when you press it with your fingertips.
Scoop 2 tablespoons of falafel mixture and roll into a ball, then press gently to make a disc. Repeat until you have 12 discs.
In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and place the falafel discs in the skillet. Sear for 4 minutes on each side or until each side is golden brown.
