Mexican Falafel

Black Bean Falafel

Dried/canned chickpeas
Dried/canned black beans
1/2 Onion
2 Garlic cloves
1 Handful of cilantro
1/2 Juice of a lime

– In a food processor pulse onion, garlic, cilantro lime juice, salt and pepper. Pulse until finely chopped, and can be clumped together. Heat frying oil in a large skillet or deep pot. Form falafel balls and drop into oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes, flip and fry again for 1 minute. Drain on paper towels and season with salt while hot.
