Serves: 12 falafel patties
  • 1 cup yellow split peas
  • 1 large carrot, trimmed and cut into pieces
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (packed) cup parsley leaves (about 1 small bunch)
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt (more or less to your taste)
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • Olive oil for spritzing tops
  1. Place the peas in a medium bowl; fill with water to cover the peas by 1 inch. Soak at least 8 hours or for up to 24 hours. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease or spray all 12 cups of a standard size muffin tin.
  3. In a food processor, pulse the carrot, onion, and parsley, marjoram, salt, pepper and cloves until finely chopped.
  4. Bring a medium saucepan half full of water to a boil; add the drained peas and cook for 4 to 6 minutes until softened slightly; Drain immediately and transfer food processor with the vegetables. Pulse until peas are just broken down and mixture starts to stick together.
  5. Shape mixture into 12 patties (each about ¼-1/3 cup) and place in prepared tins. Sprtiz tops with a bit of oil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Cool in tin, set on a cooling rack, for 10 minutes before removing from tin.
