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)
Ground Cumin (1/2 tsp)
in the food processor.
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.
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.
Spray or brush the basket with
Oil (as needed)
. 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).
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.
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.
Enjoy popping them in your mouth like candy or make a huge sandwich with some fresh flatbread, veggies, and tahini sauce.
