Easy Falafels

  • 1 (15-19 ounce) can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients, except the oil. Mix on medium-high speed until the mixture is well blended.

Shape the mixture into 1-1/2-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Flatten the balls to about 1/2-inch thickness with the bottom of a heavy drinking glass. Brush the falafels with the oil and bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown on both sides, turning halfway through the baking.
