One bite of this baked falafel and you will be seduced for sure! Its secrets lie in its “perfume” (using different herbs), and in the use of a good cooking olive oil.
These falafels are a very practical treat for a light meal, a weekday dinner, or even a buffet. They immediately became one of my favorites and I think they will become yours too!
Preparation time: 15 min
Cooking time: 15 to 20 minutes
- 1 can chickpeas
- ¼ cup flour
- the zest of a lemon
- 1 teaspoon coriander
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1 teaspoon mint
- 1 teaspoon tahini
- extra virgin olive oil
- Preheat oven to 375 ° F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place the chickpeas in the blender bowl with the herbs and start blending. Then add lemon zest, tahini, salt, pepper, and flour. Continue mixing until you have a fairly homogeneous dough.
- Pour everything onto a plate or into a salad bowl and use wet hands to make patties. Lay them on the baking sheet as you go. Season with salt, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until it forms a crust and the falafels are slightly dry. If needed, you can turn them halfway through cooking.
- Serve hot or warm with hummus, herbs, and lemon.
