Air Fryer Falafel (Vegan, Gluten-Free)


Step 1. Soak the chickpeas.

Step 2. Drain the chickpeas.

Step 3: Transfer them to a large food processor with the salt and pulse until they are small crumbles. Transfer about one-half of the pulsed chickpea mixture to a large bowl.

Step 4. Add the onion, garlic, parsley, cilantro, cumin, coriander, black pepper, cayenne and turmeric to the remaining pulsed chickpeas in the food processor.

Step 4. Process until fully incorporated and very fine.

Step 6. Transfer this mixture to the bowl with the pulsed chickpeas. Mix until fully incorporated. Refrigerate: Place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes.

Step 8. Add baking powder: Remove the falafel mixture from the fridge and sprinkle the baking powder over the top. Gently fold it evenly into the mixture.

Step 9. Shape the mixture into patties using your hands. Place them onto a lined baking sheet. Spray them lightly with cooking spray on both sides.
