INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prepare the produce
Peel and roughly chop the onion. Remove the pits from the dates and thinly slice the fruit. Thinly slice the tomato. Pick the parsley leaves. Peel the garlic. Zest and halve the lemon. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
2
Prepare the slaw
In a medium bowl, combine the sliced dates, 1 tbsp lemon juice, shredded red cabbage, and 1 tsp vegetable oil. Season crunchy date slaw with salt and toss.
3
Make the hummus
Add just 1 cup chickpeas to a food processor along with the zest and juice from half the lemon. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and, with the motor running, drizzle in 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp cold water. Taste the hummus and adjust the seasoning with salt. Transfer lemon hummus to a bowl.
4
Make the falafel
Add 1 cup of chopped onion and the garlic to a food processor and pulse to chop. Add the remaining chickpeas, parsley leaves, ground cumin, ground coriander, and ½ tsp salt to the food processor. Pulse until well chopped. Add the garbanzo bean flour and ¼ cup water. Blend until a cohesive dough forms.
5
Pan fry the falafel
Form the falafel dough into 6 two-inch patties. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 3 tbsp olive oil. Once hot, add the falafel and cook until browned and crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with salt.
6
Serve
Divide the falafel between plates and serve with the lemon hummus, crunchy date slaw, and sliced tomatoes.
