INGREDIENTS (Serves 4-6):

1 cup of dried chickpeas

½ large onion

4 cloves of garlic

3 tbsp of flour

1 tsp of cumin

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

Cheddar cheese, cubed

Frying oil (canola)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pour dried chickpeas into a large bowl, cover chickpeas with water, and let soak overnight.
  2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  3. Transfer chickpeas to food processor with onion, garlic, flour, salt, pepper, cumin, and pulse into a coarse meal. When pulsing, stop to scrape down the sides with a spatula. Make sure to not over process the falafel mixture or it’ll become creamier and you’ll make hummus.
  4. Transfer falafel meal into a small bowl and fluff with a fork.
  5. Fill a skillet about 1 ½ to 3 inches oil and heal slowly over medium heat.
  6. While oil is getting hot, wet hands and form small falafel patties.
  7. Put a cheese cube into the falafel patty and roll into a perfect falafel.
  8. To test the oil, add some falafel meal to oil. If it turns brown-black, the oil is too hot. If the meal sinks, it isn’t hot enough. If it sizzles and turns golden brown the second it touches the oil, it’s perfect!
  9. Fry 5-6 at one time in oil for about 2-3 minutes each side,  or until golden brown. About 5-6 minutes per falafel.
  10. Drain on paper towels and serve warm to enjoy the fried, cheesy goodness in your unique cheese stuffed falafel.
