Falafel "tacos"

Since I am off wheat for the duration and seriously wanted falafel pockets, I decided to use corn tortillas instead.

I started off by making the falafel:

2 cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 tablespoons mined garlic (or in this case a goodly amount of garlic powder. I was out of garlic)
1/2 onion, finely diced (again, no onion, so a heaping teaspoon onion powder)
1/3 cup dried parsley flakes
3 Tbs rice flour
salt & pepper to taste

I ran the beans thru the food processor, added the spices, garlic and onion powders, salt, pepper and parsley and mixed it with the processor. I then turned it out into a bowl and added the rice flour and mixed it in.

Normally the recipes call for frying in quite a bit of oil, but my frist attempt at that ended up with a mess. So instead I broke out my electric griddle, set it to 350F and poured on 2 Tbs of olive oil and spread it around. Once everything was ready, I made little falafel patties and fried them on the griddle:

I then set the cooked patties aside and added more olive oil and fried up the tortillas:

Then it was time to assemble:
