Helping Moms Navigate through Pregnancy, Breastfeeding & Motherhood 

Un-Fried Falafel Patties

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Sunday, March 23, 2014 Under: Recipes

Makes 4 large Patties (recipe can easily be doubled)


  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Packed ¼ cup Fresh Italian (flat leaf) Parsley (just chop off the bottom part of the stems)
  • Packed ¼ cup Fresh Cilantro (no need to remove the tender stems)
  • ¼ cup Scallions, roughly chopped
  • 1 - 14½ oz can Garbanzo Beans, rinsed and drained – reserving at least 2 Tbs. of the liquid
  • ½ cup Rolled Oats
  • 1½ Tb. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp. ground Cumin
  • ½ tsp. ground Turmeric
  • ½ tsp. round Coriander
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Freshly Ground pepper
  • ¼-½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • Tahini Sauce (recipe follows) 


Place Garlic, Parsley, Cilantro and Scallions in the bowl of a food processor and process until mixture is finely chopped. 

Add all other ingredients and process, scraping down sides as necessary until mixture is thoroughly blended. You want the mixture to stick together easily, but still maintain some of its texture. Do not over-process into a paste.

If mixture is too dry, add the reserved liquid from the chickpeas, one tablespoon at a time, pulsing to incorporate.

Transfer the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes.

Form into patties and set aside. Pre-heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and lightly coat with oil (if desired). Place patties in pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from pan. Patties should be nicely browned and crisp on each side, but not burned.

Serve in a Falabel Wrap, as a burger, as your “protein” topped with Hummus or Tahini Sauce (see recipe below), on a green salad, or alongside a chopped salad (like Tabouleh). Enjoy!

Note: Falafel Patties can be served immediately or refrigerated for up to a week. Simply reheat in a pan or toaster before serving.

Tahini Sauce


  • ¼ cup Tahini
  • 2 Tbs. freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, pressed
  • 2 Tbs. Water
  • Dash of Salt and/or freshly Ground Pepper

Place all ingredients into a bowl and stir. Enjoy!
