A baked version of the Middle Eastern treat. Falafel is a combination of chickpeas, onion, garlic, parsley, and spices. It is easy to make and dangerously tasty.Print Recipe Pin Recipe
- 15 oz (425 g) can of chickpeas
- ¼ cup (20 g) red onion diced
- 3 cloves (15 g) garlic
- 1 Tbsp (8 g) cumin
- 1 tsp (2 g) paprika
- 2 Tbsp (30 ml) lemon juice
- ¾ cup (30 g) parsley chopped
- ¼ cup (10 g) cilantro
- 1 Tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
- ¼ tsp (1 g) salt
- 1 (1) egg
- Cooking spray
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- In a food processor or a blender, add all of the ingredients except the cooking spray and pulse until the ingredients have been thoroughly mixed. You don’t want this to become a paste, so be careful with how long you blend.
- Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray and use a cookie scoop to create 1-2 inch balls from the falafel mix.
- Place on the sheet pan and lightly press down on the center to flatten each ball slightly.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until the falafel has set and browned.
- This recipe makes anywhere between 10–15 falafels depending on the size of your scoop. For reference, I made 14.
