Falafel Veggie Burgers
Falafel has always been a favorite meal of mine that I grew up eating quite often. It’s packed with so much delicious flavor, and made with the freshest ingredients.
These falafel veggie burgers are so similar to real falafel, but have a few extra add-ins, and are grilled on a pan instead of deep fried.
These falafel veggie burgers are the perfect weeknight meal to serve with a freshly chopped salad and homemade tahini sauce.
Although traditional falafel is made with dry chickpeas that have been soaked, I used canned chickpeas for this recipe to make it simpler to make.
The end result is still incredible, and is so much easier to whip up!
What you’ll need to make falafel burgers:
- canned chickpeas
- red onion
- cilantro + parsley
- spices: sesame seeds, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper and cayenne
- flour, to help bind the burgers
Blend the chickpeas, herbs and veggies together to form a paste, then mix it in with the spices and flours to form the burgers.
You can pan-fry these in a skillet, or bake them until they’re perfectly crispy!
The burgers stay soft on the inside, but get that perfect outer crisp like true falafel. If you’re a long time follower then you know I love my homemade veggie burgers, but this recipe may just be my favorite one yet.
I can’t wait for you guys to try it!
