I mean who doesn’t love Falafels ! This recipe is super easy to make and you just need a few ingredients and spices, and before you know it you’ll have some delicious little falafels balls to put in your pitas, salad or enjoy on their own with some garlic tahini dressing.
I made this recipe after work and was literally as easy throwing everything in food processor and turning on the oven.
1 Can of 19oz Chick peas
1 1/2 Cups of Parsley
1/2 White Onion
4 Cloves of Garlic
3 Tblsp. Nurtional Yest
2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
2 tsp. Cumin
1/4 Bread crumbs
1 tsp. Salt (to taste)
1 tsp. Black Pepper (to taste)
2 tsp. Olive Oil to grease pan
4 Cloves of grated Garlic
1 lemon juice
1/2 Cup Tahini
1/4 Cup Water
Drain can of chick peas and rinse throughly. Roughly chop Garlic and Onion and place into food processor and blitz until in fine small pieces. Add Parsley into food process and blitz again until combined with the onion and garlic until well combined. Once combined add in Chickpeas and blitz until ingredients combine *Tip you may have to scrap down the edges a few times to make sure everything is well combined. Pre heat oven to 350 degree.
Transfer over mixture from food processor to large bowl and add Nutritional yeast, Paprika, Cumin, Bread crumbs and Salt and Pepper. Mix throughly until all spices have been incorporated into falafel mixtures.
Grease cookie sheet with Olive oil. With a large spoon scoop falafel mixture about 2 tablespoons and make round balls with palms, press the top of the balls to create small circles and place on cookie sheet. Repeat until cookie sheet if full
Place Falafels in oven and bake for 20 mins. After 20 minutes take out and flip and bake for 10 more minutes until crisp.
Take out of Oven and let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy over Salad or in Pita wrap
Garlic Tahini Dressing
Mix all ingredients except water into small mixing bowl. Mixture will emulsify, and start slowly adding water until a mayo like consistency is achieved.
Server over Falafels or as dip for veggies 🙂
