falafel-patties RecipeHallie Burton

Ingredients

  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup low-fat Greek-style yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 8 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • Pita chips (optional)

Preparation

1. Pulse first 4 ingredients (through cumin) and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a food processor until coarsely chopped and mixture comes together. Transfer to a bowl, add egg and 2 tablespoons flour; form into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Place remaining flour in a small dish and roll patties in it with floured hands; tap off excess flour.

2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden.

3. Whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, and remaining salt and pepper. Divide greens, tomatoes, onion, and patties evenly among 4 plates; drizzle each salad with 2 tablespoons dressing. Serve with pita chips, if desired.
