Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 2-4 (makes eight 2½-inch patties)
  • 1 can cooked garbanzo beans (15 ounces; about 1½ cups), drained and rinsed
  • 1½ cups chopped kale
  • 1 cup chopped parsley or cilantro
  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup chopped yellow or white onion
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground corander
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Tzatziki Sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place all of the ingredients (garbanzo beans, kale, parsley or cilantro, rolled oats, onion, lemon juice, garlic, coriander, cumin, and paprika) into a food processor, and process until the mixture is well blended and starts to stick together. Transfer this to a medium bowl.
  3. Form 8 balls (1/4 cup falafel for each) and space them evenly on the baking sheet. Flatten each ball with your hand into a patty that is about 2½ inches in diameter and ½ inch thick.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then gently flip each patty over. Bake for 15 minutes more, or until lightly browned on each side. Let cool at least 5 minutes before serving. Serve with Tzatziki Sauce on the side.
