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!
