Baked Falafel


The Ingredients

1 can of chickpeas, rinsed & drained well

1 cup parsley leaves, loosely measured

1 cup cilantro leaves, loosely measured

2-4 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp coriander

Salt & Pepper to taste

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp olive oil

3 tbsp of oat flour (or flour of choice)

1 tsp baking soda

The Directions

Preheat oven to 375.

Finely chop parsley & cilantro.

Add chickpeas to a food processor, along with half the fresh herbs, garlic, cumin, coriander, lemon juice, oil, salt & pepper.

Process until most the chickpeas have been broken down, leaving some texture, scraping down the sides a few times. Add in flour, baking soda & rest of fresh herbs. Process until well combined.

Transfer to a large bowl & mix well with hands to make sure it is well incorporated.

Using hands or a large scoop make 12-16 even sized balls, approximately 2" diameter.

Place evenly on a lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 18-23 min or until dark golden brown.

Some of my favorite ways to enjoy are: on a salad, with a favorite dip (babaganoush, tzatziki or spicy tahini) or in a wrap.
