Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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 1015 falafels depending on the size of your scoop. For reference, I made 14.
