Falafel, regardless of their shape, are one of my favorite plant-based protein sources. You can use them in a variety of ways, and make different sauces and salads to mix and match.

Check out our version of Falafel Burgers in this YouTube video, with the recipe below!

Cook and Prep Time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4-6

You Need

  • 1 large can Chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup Oat Flour (or almond flour)

  1. Rinse and chop the produce accordingly.  Preheat oven to 400˚F.  Line 1 baking tray.
  2. Set a pan to medium heat.  Add 1 tbsp. olive oil.  Once hot, add red onion.  Cook for 3-4 minutes, until slightly softened.  Then, add garlic, a pinch of salt, and cook for 1 minute more, until fragrant.
