2 cups Authentic Foods Falafel Mix
1 ½ cups carbonated water or plain water
1 tablespoon of olive oil
3 small cloves of crushed garlic
¼ cup chopped cilantro (optional)
½ teaspoon salt (optional)
Mix carbonated water, oil, crushed garlic, chopped cilantro and salt. Then mix in the Authentic Foods Falafel Mix. Let the mixture stand for five minutes to absorb the liquid. The batter should be thick.
Pour vegetable oil into a pan approximately 1 inch deep and heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. After the liquid has been absorbed, take the falafel mixture and make small balls, about 1 inch in diameter, and fry for three to four minutes, until golden brown.
Variations: For a spicier burger, add chopped jalapeno peppers, banana wax peppers, or chili peppers.
Serve with gluten free pita bread, in a salad or alone. Also, serve with tahini sauce, tzatziki sauce or hummus.
