Falafels with Flat Bread

I had made a falafel-crusted fish the other night and had some left over falafel mixture and yogurt sauce so… I made falafels with flat bread. I actually just used my pizza dough recipe and tweaked it so it didn’t rise as much as a pizza dough. They were tasty!!!


1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons onion powder

2 teaspoons minced jalapeno chili

½ cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

2 tablespoons flour

To make the falafel mixture: Drain the chickpeas. In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, cilantro, salt, onion powder, and jalapeno and process to a smooth mixture. Pour into a bowl and fold in the panko, cumin, sesame seeds and, flour. Then form into small disc and slightly flatten.

Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350 degrees and cook falafels until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.


1 ½ cups plain yogurt

2 tablespoons sumac powder (available at Whole Foods)

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


1 yellow onion sliced

1 Roma tomato diced

Mixed salad greens or romaine

I made my own flat bread but… you can just buy it too!
