Recipe Directions for Baked Falafel

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Place the beans in a food processor and pulse until they are crumbled but not mushy. Add the garlic, onions, lemon juice and zest, spices, parsley, baking powder, salt and pepper. Pulse until just combined. Transfer to a bowl and add flour as needed. The mixture should stick together but not be dry. Depending on the texture of your beans, you might need to add more or less flour.

  3. Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet. Form mixture into balls or patties, each slightly larger than a golf ball (just less than 1/4 cup each).

  4. Bake 20 minutes, flip and bake another 15 minutes, until falafel are browned on both sides and crispy on the outside.
