Vegan baked falafel wrap

How to Make the Best Vegan Baked Falafels

Author Chef Summer Storm - garden grub
These baked falafels are made with lupini beans instead of traditional chickpeas, and they are super flavorful, crispy, fluffy, and moist! They taste great served in a pita wrap or on a salad!

Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients
 

Falafels

  • 1 1/2 cups Brami's Sea Salt & Vinegar Lupini Beans (Roughly 1 1/2 bags, but please still measure them!)
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, small diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, peels removed
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/8 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus more for brushing on top of the falafels
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour

For One Falafel Wrap You Will Need

  • 1 pita bread
  • Hummus of choice (I use Brami's Calabrian Pepper Lupini Bean Hummus)
  • Romaine lettuce, finely shredded
  • Cucumber, thinly sliced
  • Tomato, thinly sliced
  • Vegan tzatziki (I use Trader Joe's)

Instructions
 

Falafels

  • Add all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the flour into a food processor. Blend until the texture resembles a very fine meal.
  • Add the flour into the mixture and blend until well combined.
  • Line a large sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper.
  • Lightly wet your hands with water and mold the falafel mix into ten 2-tablespoon portion discs that are roughly one inch thick and two inches around. (Occasionally damping your hands with water will help prevent the falafel mix from sticking to your hands.) Next, place the falafel discs on the prepared sheet pan one inch apart from each other.
  • Place the pan of falafels in the freezer to freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Lightly brush the tops of the falafels with olive oil. Place the pan on the middle rack and bake them for 12 minutes. Flip the falafels over, lightly brush the tops with olive oil, and bake them for 13 more minutes.

Falafel Wrap

  • To build a falafel wrap, I first place a heavy spoonful of hummus on one-half side. Then, I top the hummus with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, a sprinkling of salt and pepper, three falafels, and vegan tzatziki. The amounts of each ingredient are a personal preference!
