Falafel Recipe

Our falafel recipe is easy to make and freezer friendly! We love to make baked falafel but you could easily fry these in a pan with a little oil. This is a vegan falafel recipe so it's great for serving all of your guests! Our favorite falafel sauces to serve it with are tahini, tzatziki or even plain old ketchup for the kids!

  • 2 cups dried chickpeas
  • 1 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt


  • Rinse chickpeas and place into a large bowl with enough water covering them so that when they expand they're still covered.
  • Allow chickpeas to soak overnight (12-24 hours) and make sure they're covered.
  • Once chickpeas are ready give them a good rinse and dry.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place chickpeas and remaining ingredients into a large food processor.
  • Process mixture until desired texture.
  • Once you have achieved the desired texture start to shape your falafel.
  • Bake falafel for 20-25 minutes, turning once.
