Health Rating
These homemade falafels are grain-free, gluten-free and easy to put together.

Ingredients


4 cup Chickpeas, canned, drained
1 small White onion (quartered)
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 cup Parsley, fresh (chopped)
1 cup Cilantro (coriander) ((fresh) chopped)
2 tbsp Lemon juice (as needed when blending)
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tbsp Cumin (ground)
1/2 tsp Sea salt
1 tsp Black pepper (ground)

Instructions


1. Preheat oven to 450F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or use a "Meatball Master" tray (see notes). 

2. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture has a grainy texture. You will have to scrape the bowl several times in between pulses and maybe add some of the lemon juice to loosen the mixture.

3. Pour the mixture into the bottom of a "Meatball Master" tray, or use a small scoop to make 32 individual balls.  If the mixture is too crumbly to form into balls, you can add some chickpea flour.

4. Place the balls on your parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or just until the falafels start to brown. 

5. Serve with hummus, pita bread, tahini, tzatziki, yogurt, onions and any other raw or roasted veggies you love. Store in the fridge for 3-4 days, or in the freezer for 1-2 weeks.
