“Once you’ve soaked your chickpeas, you can use a food processor and an air fryer to quickly bake these spicy falafel patties. Serve with your favorite garnishes and sauce.”


1 cup dry garbanzo beans

1 1/2 cups fresh cilantro, stems removed

3/4 cup fresh flat-leafed parsley, stems removed

1 small red onion, quartered

1 clove garlic

2 tablespoons chickpea flour

1 tablespoon ground coriander

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon sriracha sauce

salt and ground black pepper to taste

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

cooking spray


  1. Soak chickpeas in a large amount of cool water for 24 hours. Rub the soaked chickpeas with your fingers to help loosen and remove skins. Rinse and drain well. Spread chickpeas on a large clean dish towel to dry.
  2. Blend chickpeas, cilantro, parsley, onion, and garlic in a food processor until a rough paste forms. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add chickpea flour, coriander, cumin, sriracha, salt, and pepper and mix well. Cover bowl and let mixture rest for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat an air fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Add baking powder and baking soda to the chickpea mixture. Mix using your hands until just combined. Form 15 equal-sized balls and press slightly to form patties. Spray falafel patties with cooking spray.
  5. Place 7 falafel patties in the preheated air fryer and cook for 10 minutes. Transfer cooked falafel to a plate and repeat with remaining 8 falafel, cooking for 10 to 12 minutes.
