I’m so excited about this Baked Falafel recipe! It’s super easy, healthy, and great to prep ahead! I’m excited to play with this recipe – I want to add some more veggies to make it a meal on the go! In Beth’s book, these are served alone, with tahini dressing, but I decided to take it up a notch, by making mushroom slider buns and turning these into a meal, or even just a fantastic and healthy appetizer!

- 1 can canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- ½ red onion, peeled and chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled
- ¼ cup flour of your choice, I used whole wheat
- 1 Tablespoon cumin
- 1 Tablespoon coriander
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1 small carrot, peeled and chopped
- 2 Tablespoons dried parsley OR chopped fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- Prepared tahini sauce,optional, for serving
- Large stuffing mushrooms
- kosher salt
- non stick oil spray
- Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Puree until almost smooth (I like it with just a little bit of texture).
- Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop mixture into mounds on prepared baking pan. Press down lightly on each one to form a patty shape.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the outsides feel firm. The patties will firm up in the center as they cool.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with non stick cooking spray.
- Remove mushroom caps and discard or save for additional use. Sprinkle kosher salt in the cavities.
- Place mushrooms on prepared baking pan, cavity side up. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Place a mushroom on a plate, top with a falafel slider, then tahini sauce (if using), then top with an additional mushroom.
- ) Instead of small patties, you can use a quarter of a cup measuring cup to scoop out the mixture for full size patties. Increase baking time by about 10 minutes.
- ) instead of serving there as sliders, you can eat them in other ways, including chopped in a salad.
- Patties can be stored in the fridge for a few days, or in the freezer past that.
