Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 15 minutes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup scallions, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
3 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp ground cumin
3 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 tsp Eden Sea Salt
15 ounces Eden Garbanzo Beans, drained, reserve liquid, and rinsed
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
leftover cooked brown rice or Eden Millet
Place the garlic, scallions, onion, parsley, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sea salt and cumin in a food processor. Process until the mixture is finely chopped. Add the garbanzo beans and mashed potatoes. Process until smooth. The mixture should be stiff. If too stiff, add a small amount of the reserved garbanzo cooking liquid. Form the mixture into 8 patties approximately 2 inches across.
Place remaining oil in a cast iron skillet and heat up. Place the patties in the skillet and reduce the flame to medium-low. Cook until golden brown, flip over and cook the other side until golden brown. Approximately 5 to 7 minutes per side. Place the patties on a serving platter and serve.
The patties are delicious served as falafel in warm pita pocket bread with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber slices and you favorite dressing.
