Air Fryer Falafel

Recipe inspired by @toriavey

 1 (15-oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
 ½ large onion
 ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
 4 cloves garlic
 1 ½ tbsp chickpea flour
 1 ¼ tsp salt
 2 tsp cumin
 1 tsp coriander
 ¼ tsp black pepper
  tsp cayenne pepper
  tsp ground cardamom

1

After rinsing and draining your chickpeas, spread them out on the air fryer basket so they don't overlap. Set the air fryer (our toaster doubles as an air fryer so we set it to convection) to 300F for around 8 minutes to dry out the beans.

2

In a food processor, add all the ingredients and blend until a crumbly paste forms.

3

Move the batter to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

4

Once ready, form the falafel mixture into round balls using a cookie scoop or wet hands (so the mixture doesn't stick to you). Place the balls on the air fryer basket without overlapping.

5

Set the air fryer to 350F. Bake for 14 minutes until golden on the outside. Enjoy (especially with our homemade hummus)!
