Crispy baked falafel with chili-mango salad

The falafel is such a tasty little thing to master – but sometimes tricky to get right. And it can be greasy if fried like falafels you can buy. So let’s make them ourselves – and bake them for a healthier option. Why not? 🙂



  • 2 1/2 can of chick peas (drained)
  • 1 onion
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 4 tablespoon parsley
  • 4 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 chili
  • 1 mango
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 cucumber



  1. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees celsius
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender
  4. Shape falafel balls in you’re hand and place on the baking sheet
  5. Bake the falafels 25 minutes and turn them around. Bake for 20 minutes more
  6. Chop the mango, chili, avocados and cucumber into small squares and the filling is ready
  7. Serve with a tasty green tahini dressing.


I found this falafel recipe on the amazing app Forksoverknives. And if you haven’t seen the documentary by the same name on Netflix yet, you should definitely make some falafels and do the Netflix and chill this weekend. Warning all meat eaters – you will probably go vegan after watching that documentary.


Love, Nikoline
