Baked Falafel

Baked Falafel

Baked Falafel – after the kids have had some!

I was just about to make our usual Falafel Burgers for tea, when I thought that I really should try cooking them in the oven one day instead of frying them.  So I googled just to see if there was anything I should do differently & found this recipe, which looked perfect so I made it.

They were really easy to make, tasty & liked by everyone (I wasn’t able to take a photo until after the kids had had some!) – in fact, the only complaint was that there wasn’t enough, so next time I will be doubling this recipe to serve the four of us, with hopefully a few left over for my packed lunch!


  • 1 400g can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

to serve

  • pitta bread
  • avocado
  • tomatoes
  • minty yogurt (just mix lots of dried mint up in some plain yogurt and leave to stand)
  • hummus
  • grated carrot


  1. Drizzle olive oil evenly in shallow baking dish, put in the oven & preheat oven to 150C/350F.
  2. While oven is preheating, blitz the chickpeas in food processor. Add onions and garlic and blend.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to make a thick paste-like consistency.
  4. Shape into balls and place in the preheated baking dish.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
