Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming…so thinking something on the lighter side before the heaviness begins. I’ve tried several dry falafel mixes but none compare to this simple combination of chickpeas, onions, and spices for a super satisfying bit of tasty Middle Eastern crispiness.

In a large bowl combine a can of drained chickpeas, a chopped onion, a quarter to half cup of chopped parsley, a quarter cup of flour, three chopped garlic cloves, and two teaspoons each of ground coriander and cumin. Add kosher salt and pepper to taste then pulse the mixture in a food processor until smooth but slightly chunky.

Cover the bottom of a large pan with vegetable oil and leave over medium heat. Form the mixture into patties and fry until golden crispy on each side, you may need to add more oil between batches. Drain on brown bags or paper towels and serve with tahini, pickles, tomatoes, and onion…pita optional.
