Falafel Patties

Servings: variable, makes about 12 3 inch patties

2 15 ounce cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ cup onion, chopped
1 8 ounce tub hummus (optional)
2 tablespoons flour

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well mixed. Place in a bowl. Drop by large spoonfuls into a non-stick griddle and flatten slightly with fingertips. Bake about 10-12 minutes on each side, turning several times, until golden brown. Remove to a platter to cool. They will firm up as they cool.

Hints: Be sure to look for hummus that does not have any added oil. If possible, look for hummus without added tahini to reduce the fat content even further. These may also be made without the hummus and they will still be delicious.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
