Air Fryer Falafel

Air Fryer Falafel


  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg


  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C).
  • In a food processor, combine chickpeas, garlic, parsley, cilantro, cumin, salt, pepper, and baking soda. Process until mixture is smooth and slightly sticky.
  • Add flour and egg to the food processor and pulse until well combined. The mixture should be thick and hold together when rolled into a ball.
  • Using your hands, form the falafel mixture into small balls (about 1 inch in diameter).
  • Place the falafel balls in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching each other. Cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and crispy on all sides.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite tahini sauce or pita bread.
