Baked Falafel


We are on a Mediterranean kick right now at Fit Journey.  Try this baked falafel recipe to complement this week’s super food, hummus!


1 16-0unce can of chickpeas, drained

1 small onion

1-2 cloves of garlic (choose based on your taste preference)

2 tablespoons flour

1 tablespoon fresh parsley

1 teaspoon coriander

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

olive oil


Preheat oven to 400.  Coat baking sheet with olive oil.  Put all other ingredients into a food processer and pulse to a paste-like consistency.  Place golf-ball sized balls onto baking sheet.  Bake 25-30 minutes, turning over halfway through.  Outsides should be browned.  Enjoy with cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, on a salad, or in a whole wheat pita for a sandwich.  Can also be served with tahini sauce instead of hummus.
