Lentil falafel is even better than the traditional one, which is made with chickpeas. It’s less dry and easier to digest because is made with cooked lentils.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked or canned lentils (350 g)
  • 1 handful of fresh cilantro
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup oat flour (120 g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF or 200ºC.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender (except the oat flour) and blend until well combined.
  3. To make the oat flour, we just blended some oats in a blender.
  4. Add the oat flour to the mixture and blend again. You may need to add more or less flour to get the perfect consistency.
  5. Make about 16 small discs, place them onto a baking sheet (we lined it with some parchment paper) and bake them for 10 minutes for each side or until golden brown.
  6. Serve the falafel with your favorite ingredients: veggies (we used lettuce, red bell pepper, tomato and carrot), pita bread, tortillas, vegan yogurt sauce or oil-free vegan yogurt sauce, etc.
