  • 4 cups garbanzo beans cooked, drained
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter or use olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup parsley fresh, if available
  • olive oil or cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly oil or spray the paper.
  • Add all ingredients, except for the parsley, to your food processor.
  • Pulse to make a minced meal. Be careful not to over process. It should not be a puree or a batter consistency. You want a coarse meal.
  • Fold in the parsley.
  • Make the mixture into 12 balls about equal size. Flatten each slightly to about 1/2-inch thick. Place on the baking sheet.
  • Spray with baking spray or olive oil.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes. Turn each one over. Spray lightly.
  • Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  • Falafels are done when they are lightly browned and dry on both sides.
