NO FRY Vegan Falafel w/ Oil Free Creamy Hummus

No Fry Falafels and oil free hummus are the PERFECT combination. It’s SUCH an easy recipe to put together and makes the BEST dish for any time of day. The hummus is made without adding ANY oil and it still comes out just as CREAMY every time.

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes! Just make & cook the falafels, let them cool down, transfer to a freezer safe container or baggy, and stick them in the freezer. When you’re ready to cook them, just pop them in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

What’s the best flour to use?

You can use any gluten free flour you prefer, but I personally LOVE using chickpea flour for this recipe. It adds a little bit more flavor to the falafel and adds a lot more depth, plus I feel that it helps hold the mixture together a lot better than regular flour.

Keep it healthy with healthy spreads/sauces.

For me, falafels is ALWAYS good with hummus & Tzatziki sauce. The combination was AMAZING!!!

I used my homemade vegan Tzatziki sauce recipe for these falafels. I love this sauce, it goes well with pretty much everything and it’s so flavorful.

Start by making the hummus - in a medium saucepan add the UNDRAINED chickpeas and garlic and bring to boil. Simmer for 5 minutes


Add the boiled chickpea, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, salt, and cumin to a high speed blender (I used my amazing Vitamix) - blend until smooth. Add water as needed to make sure the hummus is smooth and creamy


Transfer to a bowl and chill in the fridge


For the falafel - Preheat the oven to 400º


in a food processor, add the chickpeas, onions, garlic, and parsley - turn on high until smooth. Transfer to a bowl


To the chickpea onion mixture add the remaining falafel ingredients and mix well until everything is well combined.


Let the mixture chill for 30-35 minutes so it firms up and becomes easier to handle


Once chilled, take 1-2 tbsp of mixture and form into a bowl - transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper


Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes


Serve with hummus and homemade tzatziki sauce
