Baked Falafel

Deep fried falafel not in your diet? Try it baked! Baked falafel is still crunchy on the outside and delicious on the inside!


1 15-19 oz can chickpeas, drained
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves of Cumin Rubbed Smoked Garlic, chopped
1 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil

Drizzle olive oil evenly in shallow baking dish. Preheat oven to 350.

While oven is preheating, mash chickpeas with mortar and pestle or in food processor. Add onions and Cumin Rubbed Smoked Garlic and blend.

Add remaining ingredients to make a thick paste-like consistency.

Shape into ping pong size balls and place in preheated baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.

Serving Baked Falafel

Baked falafel can be served the same way fried falafel would be served. Try it in a pita sandwich with tahini and veggies or on a platter with some hummus and a Middle Eastern salad.
