These falafels are super easy and a great option for your vegan meal prep! They can be perfectly frozen so I advice making these in larges batches and storing them.
Whenever you are looking for a quick meal just defrost 🥶 them and enjoy! 🙌
Add some vegan mayo or tahini sauce and eat them with our homemade pita bread. Too good!
Chickpea Falafels, FLAVOUR BOMBS
Let's make falafels!
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
Place chickpeas in a strainer and drain them really well. Pat them dry with a kitchen or paper towel. THEY MUST BE VERY DRY.
Place the cilantro, onion, jalapeño and garlic in a food processor and pulse repeatedly until uniformly chopped, like 20 times, at least. Add 4 cups of well-drained, soaked garbanzo beans, oil, cumin, coriander, salt and the baking soda. Blend again, until very well combined, scraping down sides if necessary. You want it to be blended well, like a coarse paste, but not as smooth as hummus. Some texture is good!
Make little balls put them on a baking tray. Bake them for about 40 minutes and optionally flip them mid-time.
Enjoy with some pita bread or just with some vegetables and quinoa!
