The Ultimate Baked Falafels

The Ultimate Baked Falafels

1/4 cup gluten-free large flake oats
1/2 cup fresh parsley
6 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1 large can (400g) chickpeas (strained and rinsed)
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp tahini
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin

  • In your food processor add oats, pulse into a flour-like substance. Remove from food processor and place to the side.
  • Next add parsley, garlic and onion to food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Then add oat flour, chickpeas, nutritional yeast, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, coriander, cardamom, sea salt, pepper and a pinch cayenne pepper. Pulse until it becomes a crumbly dough-like texture. (You might have to pulse ingredients first to combine, then remove 1/2 the blend and pulse in smaller batches. I did it in 2 batches and it was much easier for my food processor).
  • Transfer falafel dough to mixing bowl. Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and scoop rounded tablespoon amounts of dough onto parchment paper, and gently form balls. (I used an ice cream scoop to do this.)
