Falafel - makes 18 1-inch balls
2 cups cooked chickpeas or black-eyed peas, drained
1/4 cup pulverized rice bran
2 cloves fresh garic, minced
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 tsp dried or 2 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro
Creamy Cucumber Dressing (see below)
In a food processor or blender combine all ingredients, except flour.
The pure'e will not be entirely smooth, which is good. Preheat oven
to 350 degrees. Dipping your hands lightly in flour, if you need to,
shape the pure'e into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Spray a large
skillet with Pam and heat until very hot. Saute' the balls on all
sides, then transfer them to a baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.
Serve with Creamy Cucmber Dressing.
