Air Fryer Falafel Recipe

by healthyeat
Ingredients for 20 falafels Batter 4 cups garbanzo, drained and air-dried 3 cloves garlic 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch 2 teaspoons cumin 1 teaspoon coriander 1/2 teaspoon cardamom 1 tablespoon sea salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1 1/2 cups fresh parsley, chopped and packed 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped and packed 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves Coating (optional but the macronutrient count includes them) 1 1/2 cups garbanzo crumbs (OR panko crumbs OR wheat breadcrumbs) 3 eggs, lightly beaten Tahini sauce
Steps Rinse and drain canned chickpeas.  Pro-tip: after draining, spread the chickpeas on a paper towel or large towel on your kitchen table or countertop.  Let the chickpeas air-dry for about 1 hour before placing in the food processor. Add all the ingredients for the batter to a food processor. PULSE blend until the batter is crumbly but sticks together when tightly packed.  Empty the contents into a bowl and place in the fridge for 15 – 20 minutes. Set air-fryer to 400F. Use an ice-cream scooper to scoop out each falafel batter, then pack it in and form it into a round, solid ball.  Repeat.  Note: after you form these into balls you can move forward and place them in the air fryer – just spray them with avocado oil – for the same cooking time. If you want a crispy, crunchy coating like the original recipe, then add the coating. Dip each ball in egg, then in the crumbs, then place it in your air-fryer basket.  If you’re cooking this in batches, ONLY coat the falafels before they go into the air-fryer to prevent the crumbs from softening.  Before cooking in the air-fryer, spray with avocado oil.  Cook for 15 – 20 minutes.
