Falafel Patty Melt
Ingredients
1/2
cup frozen peas
1
16 ounce can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
1
medium carrot, shredded
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons olive oil
1/2
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4
teaspoon salt
8
slices dilled Havarti cheese (4 to 6 ounces)
4
flatbreads or pita bread rounds
 
Romaine leaves (optional)
 
Sliced tomato (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place peas in 1-quart microwave-safe dish. Cover and cook on 100 percent power (high) for 2 minutes. Using a food processor or an immersion blender, puree garbanzo beans, carrot, flour, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, the pepper, and salt. Stir in peas. Form mixture into eight patties.
  2. Heat remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until browned and heated through.
  3. Meanwhile, place flatbreads on a baking sheet. Place two slices of cheese atop each flatbread. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Place two patties on each flatbread; fold over. Cut in half and, if desired, serve with romaine and tomato.
