Baked Falafel


Got the idea from the world famous Chocolate & Zucchini blog. I made it twice and the first time I think I had my hopes raised too high - liked them, didn't love them. The 2nd time I made them for a potluck and the other people there assumed they were fried and really liked them. So the verdict is they are somewhere between good and great tasting, and they are a million times easier to do than fried ones - all the fry oil is annoying. Therefore, a winner.

General jist is soak chickpeas 24 hours, drain them, don't cook them, grind them in a food processor with things (I happened to use sorrel for the herb), bake 350 or so, I didn't flip them but the recipe calls for it. The recipe is in the link.
