Vegan Falafel Burgers

Vegan Falafel Burgers
400g bottle of chickpeas 
a handful of dried parsley
1/2 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
(I used a seasoning that has a mixture of Indian spices in it like turmeric, curry and coriander. Just use what you have in the kitchen.)
1 lime
some salt to taste
2 Tbsp. white whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp. sunflower oil
1 small red onion, chopped in small pieces
1 garlic clove, minced

Put about 1/4 tsp. sunflower oil in a pan with the garlic and onion and cook until onion is soft. While that is cooking mash up the chickpeas in a bowl. Once they are mashed add the spices, lime and flour. Mix until well blended. Once the garlic and onion is done add them to the chickpeas and mix again. Shape them into about 4 patties and fry with the 2 Tbsp. sunflower oil. Fry on one side until golden brown, then flip once to brown the other side. Serve hot.

I've wanted to make falafel for awhile now and I am very happy with the results. I made this vegan dish once before using a recipe I found on Google+ but it didn't have enough flavor. So I remade them adding my own spices and changing how they are prepared. The lime is a must as well as cooking the garlic and onion separately. This recipe is so easy that you don't even need a blender!
