Gluten free baked falafel

Gluten free, vegan, Baked falafel :
Ingredients:

    Instructions:
    • Preheat the oven to 375f
    • Add the canned chickpeas, cilantro, parsley, garlic and spices to a food processor the Israeli secret for falafel is lots of cumin!!! So be generous with the cumin !! And sprinkle of smoked paprika and salt

    • Add 1/2 cup of the chickpeas water and 1/4 cup of garbanzo flour and Mix until combined. The mixture should sticky enough to form patties, if it doesn't add more chickpea flour. 

    • Pass the mixture into a medium size mixing bowl ( you can try the mixture and adjust taste if needed) I add more cumin and salt
    • Use an ice cream scoop or regular spoon to scoop the falafel on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Press them a bit flatter and spray them with olive oil. 
    • Bake them in the oven for about 30 minutes, carefully flipping them with a spatula after 20 minutes. They should be crispy on the outside and soft but not mushy on the inside. Be carful not to dry them as well :) remember you can always try them out , all ingredients are safe!

    • I serve them with my homemade tahini, and sprinkle of zathar on top, recipe in notes

      Notes :
      • I used chickpeas from the can because real life call for fast recipes, if you plan to make falafel in advance o would always recommend using real chickpeas, it will require soaking them for 12 hours in salty water with baking soda
      • You can make the mixture in advance and refrigerate for 4-6 hours, i had to prep it in the morning and I baked them early afternoon and it was delicious!
      • The mixture is easier to use if you can refrigerate for 30 min before you scoop the falafel balls ,
      • Tahini dip recipe:
      :
      WHAT U NEED :
      1LB TAHINI RAW SESAME PASTE ( I USE THE 365 FROM WF )
      2 -4 SQUEEZE LEMONS
      1.1/2CUP OF ICE WATER
      SPICES: CUMIN, SALT, WHITE PEPPER
      INSTRUCTIONS:
      FOR PERFECT CREAMY TEXTURE COMBINE EVERYTHING IN A FOOD PROCESSOR AND BLEND WELL *ADD WATER/ LEMON IF NEEDED UNTIL YOU GET THE PERFECT CONSISTENCY, IF YOU DON’T WANT TO USE FOOD PROCESSOR, YOU CAN DO IT IN A MIXING BOWL AND WHISK IT WELL, IT’S A GREAT ARM WORKOUT !
