After years of testing out new falafel recipes, these truly are The BEST Homemade Baked Falafels that make your kitchen smell like you are walking down the streets of Greece! Serve them with warm pita, hummus, and a fresh yogurt-lime sauce for ultimate satisfaction.
These falafels freeze and store in the fridge beautifully, making them great for meal prepping.
I recommend serving as the protein option for an arugula salad with some ripe cherry tomatoes and thinly sliced shallots.
Another traditional method to serve these falafels is with warm pita bread and hummus.
My favorite sauce is a homemade yogurt-lime sauce that is my go-to! You simply whisk together 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, juice of 1 lime, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, and a dash of apple cider vinegar (to your liking). Also, feel free to add a little water to thin out the sauce to your preference.
Absolutely! (Between you and me, I think they taste even better when fried in olive oil lol)
Just heat up 2-3" of olive oil in a frying pan to 350F. Then, simply use your hands to roll out 1.5 tablespoons of batter to be fried in the oil for 2-3 minutes. If needed, use a slotted spoon to turn them halfway through baking to ensure perfect crispiness on all sides.
Finally, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil and place on a paper towel or kitchen cloth to drain any excess oil.
