Split Pea Falafel Recipe
Posted 15 June 2011 - 05:40 PM
4 cloves garlic
1 onion, medium
3 T brown rice flour
4 t ground cumin
3 t dried majoram
1/2 to 1 t red pepper flakes
1 t sumac (or use some lemon juice)
1 t dried thyme
2 t baking powder
Soak peas overnight or for at least 8 hours. Drain, and rinse.
Peel and trim the garlic and onions. Chop finely in a food processor. Add the split peas, herbs/spices, flour, and process until a paste. Add baking powder and pulse until well mixed.
Heat 1/2" oil in a frying pan until decidedly hot (you should see wavy lines in the bottom and things should sizzle when you add them). Shape patties (2" by 1/2" is what I made) and fry until browned on one side (took mine about 2 minutes). Flip, and fry until browned on the other side. It's like doing latkes-- you'll need to play with the heat to keep the oil hot but not burning them before they are cooked unless you're used to frying things. Remove, and drain on paper towels.
Optional: Fresh parsley is a must for some, and cilantro can also be used. If you don't like cumin, try coriander. I don't typically salt something like this, but feel free to add salt and pepper.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?
