This Middle Eastern staple is commonly deep-fried. However in this recipe, the falafel is baked to reduce the excess calories from deep frying.
1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
½ medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. of ground coriander
1 tsp. of ground cumin
¼ cup of freshly chopped cilantro
¼ cup of freshly chopped parsley
1 tsp. of baking powder
1 tbsp. of flour
1 tbsp. of lemon juice
½ tsp. of salt
¼ tsp. of pepper
1Preheat oven to 375 F.
2Lightly coat a large baking sheet with olive oil or line baking sheet with parchment paper.
3Combine all the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are mixed.
4Adjust the seasoning to your liking. Make sure to mix the mixture evenly.
5With a spoon, scoop up a spoonful of the falafel mixture and shape it into a mini burger shape, gently flattened the top.
6Bake the falafel for about 15 minutes on each side (for a total of 30 minutes) or until fully cooked in the center and golden brown on both sides.
