• Place cooked chickpeas in the blender and add the onion, parsley, 1 Tbsp. of the flour, the garlic, stock, baking soda, spices, salt and pepper. Process until smooth.
• Place the mixture in a glass bowl and refrigerate until firm, about 20 to 30 minutes, then shape into 12 balls.
• Douse the balls with flour (if the mixture didn’t harden enough, you may have to use a lot of flour) and fry in hot oil, turning frequently, until brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
• Put falafel into a pita pocket and top with salad, alfalfa sprouts, pickles and vegan mayo.
