Crispy, flavorful and filling, this falafel recipe is a great go-to. This recipe features our new Global Blends Za’atar Seasoning.
- Place soaked chickpeas, red onion, parsley, cilantro, garlic, Za'atar, salt, cumin, red pepper and baking powder in the bowl of a food processor. Process until blended, but not pureed.
- Add flour and pulse. Mixture should hold together when compressed. If not, add slightly more flour until mixture holds together.
- Use a # 30 scoop to portion out falafel mix. Compress scoops and form into disks. Press a dimple into the center of each disk. Falafels can be frozen at this point and held for up to 2 weeks or refrigerated for 2-3 days.
- When ready to serve, fry at 375°F until golden brown. Serve as desired.
Use these falafels in wraps or salads or even as a stand-alone dish. Pairs perfectly with Za'atar Labneh.
