Falafel is a popular Lebanese street food, that is traditionally cooked deep-fried. I always avoided making Falafel because I like to stay light on fried food. Not anymore! Now that I own a sweet air fryer, which by the way was one the best additions to my kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dried chickpeas, soaked overnight
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup parsley leaves, chopped

  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tbsp corn starch 
  • olive oil cooking spray

Instructions

Crispy Falafel

    1. Place chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with at least 2 inches water. Soak overnight. When the chickpeas are soaked, drain the water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
    2. Place the uncooked, soaked chickpeas and all the remaining ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the chickpeas are finely minced. The mixture will have a coarse texture.
    3. Rest this mixture at least an hour in the fridge to allow it to firm up. This step will make shaping the falafel balls much easier.
    4. Preheat air fryer to 380°F.
    5. Scoop one heaping table spoon of the mixture, and using your hands or cookie scoop, shape the falafel mixture into a golf ball shaped ball. how to make falafel baked
