Baked Falafel

Ingredients: Makes 20 servings

Side dishes

1/2 pound dry chickpeas
3 1/4 ounces yellow onion, finely chopped
1/2 ounce minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 ounce freshly chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Soak garbanzo beans in water overnight, drain.
  2. In a food processor, pulse garbanzo beans until well ground, but do not puree. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until mixture is evenly distributed and holds together when formed into a ball. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  4. Scoop chickpea mixture into 1 ounce portions, roll into balls, and flatten slightly. Place on sheet tray and bake until golden brown, turning once, about 10-15 minutes per side.
