I also enjoy a baked falafel recipe that I tweaked a little from the original on here. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2392953
1 tin chickpeas
1 tin kidney beans
3 cloves garlic
2 small onions, chopped
1 lime juiced and zested
2 T ground cumin
1 T ground coriander
1 t black pepper
1/4 t salt
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (4tbsp)
2 T olive oil
Chilli flakes (optional)
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5.
Mash the beans and add the garlic, onions, lemon juice and zest, spices, parsley, salt and pepper and combine. Add flour as needed. The mixture should stick together but not be dry. Depending on the texture of your beans, you might need to add more or less flour.
Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet. With oiled hands form mixture into balls or patties, each slightly larger than a golf ball (just less than 1/4 cup each). Makes 12
Bake 20 minutes, flip and bake another 15 minutes, until falafel are browned on both sides and crispy on the outside.
Serve with toasted pitta and add salads and sauces if you like.
