Step 1
Take out a food processor and combine the Chickpeas (1 can) , Onion (1) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Fresh Dill (1 Tbsp) , zest of the Lemon (1/2) , Baking Soda (1/2 tsp) , Lawry's® Seasoned Salt (1/2 tsp) , Ground Turmeric (1/2 tsp) , Ground Cumin (1/2 tsp) , and Smoked Paprika (1/2 tsp) in its bowl.
Step 2
Pulse the mixture until it is well combined but still has some texture. Use a spatula to push down the sides midway through to make sure everything gets in there. Cover the mixture and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.
Step 3
The next day, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Take a sheet tray and line it with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Step 4
Lightly grease the lined tray with Olive Oil (as needed) . Scoop out 2 tablespoon portions of the mixture and roll those portions into balls. Line the balls up on the prepared baking sheet and gently flatten each of them into small patties.
Step 5
Bake the falafel for 25 minutes, until the outside is golden and crispy. Take the tray out when they're done and let them cool for a minute. Transfer them to a plate and serve with Greek Yogurt (as needed) , Pita Bread (as needed) , Tomatoes (as needed) , and Cucumbers (as needed) , if you wish for a wonderful vegetarian sandwich! Enjoy!
