Introduction

A healthier twist on traditional falafel. These are patted down and baked instead of deep frying A healthier twist on traditional falafel. These are patted down and baked instead of deep frying
Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    1 can of Garbanzo beans
    1 onion chopped fine
    2 cloves of garlic chopped
    3 basil leaves chopped
    1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
    1 tbsp of lemon juice
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 tbsp flour
    1 tsp baking powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans. Put in a medium sized bowl and smash with a fork or potato smasher. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well using your hands to incorporate all ingredients. Form into small balls, about 1 1/2″ in diameter and slightly flatten (for crispier falafel flatten completely). Place onto an oiled baking pan.

Bake for 15 minutes on each side, until nicely browned (since itís baked, only the part actually touching the pan will be browned and crispy).
Serve with salad or Pitas.
