Baked Falafel Video

I am so excited to present my first cooking video!

*Note: In the video I said 1 tablespoon of baking powder, but I did actually mean 1 TEASPOON of baking powder.

Baked Falafel

1 15 oz. can of drained, rinsed chick peas
1/2 white onion
1 cup fresh parsley, loosely packed
2 cloves of garlic
1 tbs whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbs cumin
1/4 tbs coriander
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 tbs kosher salt
1/4 tbs black pepper
cooking spray or olive oil

1. Pulse all your ingredients in a food processor until it reaches a medium chunky consistency. It should take about 15 seconds.
2. Put the batter in a bowl and cover with a damp cloth for 30 minutes in a warm place until the batter has risen a bit. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
3. Using two spoons or an ice cream scoop, drop small flattened balls of batter onto a cooking sheet sprayed with either olive oil or cooking spray.
4. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Put the oven on broil (high) for 2 minutes to crisp up the outside. Enjoy!

*A big thank you to PB for producing this video.

  18. I’m making these when I get home. Can I use dried parsley? How much do you think?

    Lauren- I honestly wouldn’t use dried parsley since the fresh parsley is such a major component to this dish! Maybe try another fresh herb you have?

  20. I caved and tried it with the dried parsley. Not bad, I added wayyyyyyyyyyyy too much salt. I’m attempting them again today. I just went to Trader Joes and got some hummus and pitas. I better get them right this time. 🙂

  21. Hi there! I have been eying this recipe for a while! Finally tried it, but I didn’t have parsley either…so I used chopped spinach, and also drizzled in about 1 tbs of tahini before letting it sit. It’s about to go in the oven now- thanks so much for the recipe- it smells just like restaurant falafel so far!
