Baked Falafel | Vegan

Falafel are so simple to make, just toss everything into the food processor and done. Whether you want to bake or fry them is up to you. I prefer the baked ones simply because it’s a lot less messy and if you brush them with the right amount of oil you won’t even know the difference.

They key to the most delicious homemade falafel is to use all fresh ingredients, especially herbs!

You can even pre make the batter and then freeze them. Perfect for a quick weekday dinner!
