The day before you make this recipe, in a medium size bowl, soak the chickpeas in cold water overnight. Fill the bowl with water to completely cover the chickpeas.

Step 1

The next day, drain the soaked chickpeas and gently pat them dry. Add the dry chickpeas, along with other ingredients, to a food processor bowl. Pulse to combine.

Step 2

Use a medium portion scoop to scoop the falafel mixture. Place each ball on a baking sheet. Chill to firm for 1-2 hours.

Step 3

Once they are chilled and firm, spritz each falafel with olive oil spray, as well as coating the basket with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper.

Step 4

Air fry falafel at 380 degrees F for 15-18 minutes, until the outside is golden brown and slightly crispy.

Step 5

- Do not substitute canned chickpeas for dried chickpeas. - Soaking the chickpeas in water and then grinding them in the food processor, will help the mixture hold the shape.
