Soak the garbanzo beans in water overnight to sprout the beans. The beans will absorb water and expand to fill 3 cups.
For the falafel: Combine the garlic, onions and parsley in a food processor
and process until fine. Add the garbanzo beans, flour, baking powder, cumin
, sugar and salt and mix well.
Roll the falafel mixture into golf-ball-size balls. Heat some olive oil
in a pan, then fry
until golden brown on both sides. Remove from the heat and let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes in order to let the falafel become firm. Lightly fry again before serving to crisp
and warm through.
Spread a thick layer of hummus onto each pita
, then lay the falafels down on top. Cover with the caramelized onions, roasted red peppers and grilled eggplant
sauce and garnish
with the chopped parsley. Add a handful of fresh mesclun
greens, wrap up and serve.
