Simple oven-baked lentil falafels that are made with pantry ingredients are a great way to boost the nutrition of any meal!




  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor fitted with the S blade and pulse until mostly smooth, but some texture remains. The mixture will be more moist than a typical falafel dough, but this is normal. 
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up slightly.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Form the mixture into 12 patties and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until nicely browned and crispy around the edges.
  5. Use in bowls, salads, wraps, pita sandwiches, etc.
