They’re great with hummus or over rice or in a pita as a sandwich.
You must use dry chick peas for this recipe. Canned won’t work, unfortunately. (But dried chickpeas, aka garbanzo beans, are easy to find these days — big box grocery stores all have them!) If you must use canned chick peas, Vitamix’s falafel recipe uses them, though I cannot attest to the recipe itself.
Look for “curly parsley” not “Italian parsley.”
Fresh garlic cloves are always best. But to save some time, we used minced garlic from a jar and it worked just fine.
