Air-Fried Falafel: Each bite invites you to savor the authentic flavors of falafel, now with a healthier and airier twist. Air-Fried Falafel: a tantalizing journey for your taste buds that combines traditional charm with the modern convenience of air frying.

Ingredients:

For the Falafel:

  • 2 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or chickpea flour (for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (for coating the falafel)

For Air Frying:

  • Cooking spray or additional olive oil for spraying the falafel

Instructions:

  • Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  • Prepare the Falafel Mixture:
    • In a food processor, combine chickpeas, chopped onion, minced garlic, fresh parsley, ground cumin, ground coriander, cayenne pepper, flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Pulse until the mixture is well combined but still has a coarse texture.
  • Form Falafel Balls:
    • Scoop out small portions of the mixture and shape them into small balls or patties. If the mixture is too wet, you can add more flour.
  • Coat with Olive Oil:
    • Lightly brush or spray the falafel balls with olive oil to help them crisp up in the air fryer.
  • Air Fry:
    • Place the falafel in the EaZy MealZ Crisper Basket, making sure they are not touching each other. You may need to cook them in batches.
  • Air Fry for Crispy Texture:
    • Air fry for 15-18 minutes, turning the falafel halfway through, until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside.
  • Serve:
    • Remove the falafel from the air fryer and let them cool slightly. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or tahini.

Optional:

  • You can also serve the falafel in pita bread with fresh veggies and tahini sauce for a classic falafel sandwich.
