Best Baked Falafel Ever

We eat falafel very often, so we wanted an easy and delicious recipe we can make at home. We tried this one and really enjoy it. They are so crispy and satisfying. Come on make it at home!

Hi everyone,

We love falafel so much…mmm, It’s one of our favourite vegetarian dishes. We are big fans of this recipe and the best part is that it only has a few ingredients. We try to avoid the frying pan, so we bake them instead, it is the healthier option for us and they are so yummy. You can fry them if you prefer it  though! It’s just a suggestion 🙂
