15 falafel patties
Serving Size
3 falafel patties

¼ cup olive oil, divided

1 cup dried chickpeas, soaked overnight (do NOT use canned)

1 small red onion, chopped

1 cup packed fresh parsley leaves, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.  Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to a food processor, along with the drained chickpeas, onion, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, and coriander. Pulse until well combined.
  2. Pour the remaining 3 tablespoons of the olive oil on a large rimmed baking sheet so that a thin layer is evenly coating the pan.
  3. Form the falafel dough into 2-tablespoon sized round balls, then flatten into patties and set on the oiled pan. (Makes about 15 falafel patties.)
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip, then bake for another 15 minutes.
