Not fried but tasty nonetheless. The recipe makes 16 falafels, assuming 4 per person. But with flat bread and condiments (tomatoes, yogurt sauce, etc.), I can usually eat only 2 or 3.

Recipe Ingredients for Baked Falafel

1 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (or to taste)
1 tbsp lemon juice (up to 2 tbsp, if you prefer)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (regular or whole wheat, plain)

Recipe Directions for Baked Falafel

  1. Put everything except the breadcrumbs in the food processor and whirl until everything is finely chopped, mixed, and somewhat pasty.

  2. Remove from food processor. Stir in breadcrumbs then shape into 16 patties.

  3. Brush a baking sheet with the oil and place the patties on the tray. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes on each side, or until tender and cooked all the way through.
