1/3 Photos of Baked Chickpea Falafel
2 hrs 15 mins
I like that the falafel are baked instead of pan-fried. I have made falafel before that fall apart in the pan. From a borrowed library book "The ultimate book of vegan cooking". Instead of cooking soaked chickpeas by boiling you may prefer to pressure cook them. Gluten-free if gf ingredients are used. Can be served with a salad, on pita bread or with tahini. Cooking time does not include overnight soaking of the beans.
