Best Gluten free Falafel
Updated: May 16, 2020
I love a good falafel plate! but when you eat them in a restaurant it's mostly deep fried and you don't always know what's inside that ball... so if you like falafel - you should defiantly try mine. They're gluten and grain free and they're baked! add some salad and tahini to it and you have a full meal that's healthy and delicious!
You'll need -
1 1/2 cups of cooked chickpeas (Dry ones that you cook yourself at home, taste so much better than the canned ones!)
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup purple onion
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp tahini
How to make them?
Heat the oven to 375 deg. Fahrenheit.
In a food processor put together all the ingredients and blend until all combined.
Use your hands to scoop out about 1 1/2 tbsp of the mixture at a time. Shape the falafel into small discs. Place all the falafel patties on a pan lined with baking paper.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through baking until the falafels are golden on both sides.
