baked falafel

Leave a comment

I love chickpeas! There are so many things you can do with them! In my earlier vegetarian days, in college, falafel from a food cart was always a go-to for me.   But knowing that falafel is usually fried now makes them less appealing.  This baked version is a great substitute, and topped with freshly sliced veggies makes for a fresh, clean meal.

IMG_1381 IMG_1396 IMG_1398 IMG_1403baked falafel:

  • 1 cup dry chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 t cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 1/2 t sea salt
  • 1/2 t ground black pepper
  • 2 T olive oil
  • juice from 1/2 lemon.

Soak chickpeas overnight. Rinse and train. Preheat oven to 375. Combine all ingredients and process in food processor until a crumbly paste forms.  Form dough into small patties and place on parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for 25-30 minutes flipping patties once.  Allow to cool slightly for patties to bind.  Serve over sliced vegetables.
