Air Fryer Falafel

Made out of fava aka broad beans and a whole lotta green greens, this kind of falafel is usually deep fried in a vat of super hot oil. But over the last couple of days I made it my mission in life to bake it in my new air-fryer. It worked AND it was pretty darn good!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Pulse Fava Beans (1 1/3 cups) , Fresh Parsley (1/2 cup) , Fresh Cilantro (1/2 cup) , Garlic (3 cloves) , Spring Onion (1) , Ground Coriander (1/2 Tbsp) , Salt (to taste) , and Ground Cumin (1/2 tsp) in the food processor.
Step 2
Adjust consistency by adding a tablespoon of Water (to taste) until mixture is smooth but still firm. Add 2-3 tablespoons of All-Purpose Flour (to taste) to falafel mixture. Refrigerate for at least two hours.
Step 3
The mixture will be soft but relatively scoopable. Make loose balls that are slightly smaller than golf ball sized and lay them gently on a tray or baking sheet. Put in the freezer until frozen solid.
Step 4
Spray or brush basket with Oil (to taste) . Put frozen falafel balls in a single layer at the bottom of the basket and wait a couple of minutes until their tops start to get a bit shiny. Then bake them for 10 minutes at 330 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Step 5
Spray the falafel balls with oil and then raise the heat to 355 degrees F (180 degrees C). Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until they turn a nice golden brown.
Step 6
Use a spoon to gently coax the falafel balls out of the air fryer basket. They might leave a tiny piece of their bottom parts behind but that’s totally okay.
Step 7
Enjoy popping them in your mouth like candy or make a huge sandwich with some fresh flatbread, veggies, and tahini sauce.
