Easy Falafel Bites


2 1/2 cups garbanzo beans (cooked chickpeas)
1 small bunch parsley (about 1 cup chopped)
1 small bunch cilantro (about 1 cup chopped)
1/2 t salt
1/4 t chili powder or cayenne pepper
2 t cumin
2 T flour

Combine ingredients in a food processor until a paste forms. (it’s ok if it’s slightly chunky that add to the texture of the falafel) The flour is meant to bind the ingredients and hold it together. If it falls apart when frying up add more flour to the batter. Using an ice cream scooper, fry up balls of falafel mixture in a small amount of oil until both sides are lightly browned. (flatten down the ball gently when you flip it over to cook the other side this will create more of a burger shape) Serve with hummus and fresh pita.
