Healthy Falafel Wraps
Health Highlights
These homemade falafels are grain-free, gluten-free, and easy to put together.


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)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F (232C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  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, add extra lemon juice to loosen the mixture if needed.
  3. 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 in a salad or 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. 


Quick Tips

  • Store the falafel balls in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to form or freeze to bake later
