These golden baked falafel are tasty and super easy to put together — and no frying! Toss together your fresh ingredients, roll them into balls, bake and presto! You've got a great, healthy meal. Garbanzo beans (or chickpeas) are the main ingredient for this Middle Eastern-inspired recipe and hold everything together.
Garbanzo beans are considered legumes. If you're interested in a diet high in protein and fiber and low in fat and cholesterol, grab some garbanzos! Legumes also make a good replacement food for meats due to their nutritional content and great texture and flavor. Perfect for Meatless Monday meals!
Serve these falafel with a side of tangy tzatziki sauce, veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes, pita bread and a side of greens for a healthy, Meatless Monday meal.
