Heart Healthy Falafel Recipe
Written by bisan darawshehOn April 16, 2019
Once a month my wife and I go to our favorite falafel place and have falafel and salads for dinner. That was until I started making falafel at home. It isn’t as time-consuming at you may think. The only drawback, now my wife can ask for a falafel dinner anytime she has a craving for it.
This homemade falafel recipe is absolutely delicious and remarkably crispy! Be sure to allow 4 hours soaking time for the chickpeas, preferably overnight. Then, the falafel mixture is super easy to make in a food processor. Recipe yields 12 to 13 falafels.
With an oven rack in the middle position, preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour a ¼ cup of the olive oil into a large, rimmed baking sheet and turn until the pan is evenly coated.
In a food processor, combine the soaked and drained chickpeas, onion, parsley, cilantro, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, cinnamon, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.
Using your hands, scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the mixture at a time. Shape the falafel into small patties, about 2 inches wide and ½ inch thick. Place each falafel on your oiled pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, carefully flipping the falafels halfway through baking, until the falafels are deeply golden on both sides. These falafels keep well in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for several months.
