Falafel Patties (Vegan, low fat, easy, gluten free)

1 can chick peas
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tbst flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 med onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp cumin

To make gluten free, use gluten free bread crumbs or tortilla crumbs, and I find the flour isnt essential- just add more breadcrumbs, and let it sit a few minutes to soften.

Put chick peas in food processor and pulse till it's mushed up. Put in a mixing bowl.

Put onion and garlic into food processor and chop up.
Add it to the mixing bowl.

Add remaining ingredients and knead the mixture.

Make into small patties and fry in a non-stick frying pan.

I prefered the ones made with no oil, and cooked over medium heat for approximately 3 minutes each side.
