For the Falafel:

  • 1 onion quartered
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 cans chickpeas drained & rinsed
  • 1/2 c unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 c olive oil
  • 3/4 c chickpea/garbanzo bean flour
  • 1/4 c filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp coriander
  • 2 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • parchment paper

For the bowls:

  • 1 bunch radishes trimmed & sliced thin
  • 1/2 red onion sliced thin
  • 1 c pitted Sicilian or mixed olives sliced in half
  • 1 English cucumber sliced thin
  • 1 pint cherry tomato sliced in half
  • 1/2 bunch parsley chopped

For serving:

  • 1 6-8oz container prepared hummus
  • sesame seeds


  • Preheat oven to 375*
  • Put the onion & garlic in a good processor and pulse until chopped. Add remaining fallafel ingredients; puree until you have a smooth-ish consistency!
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a 1/4 size measuring cup, scoop heaping portions of batter onto lined baking sheet. You will get 12-15 fallafel, depending on how big you scoop!
  • Sprinkle fallafel with sesame seeds and gently pat down with your fingers into patties. Pop into the oven for 20 minutes.
  • While fallafel bakes, prepare bowl(s). Divide ingredients evenly into (4) containers for easy grab & go throughout the week OR into one large bowl/platter for serving.
  • Add 3-4 fallafel patties + a generous scoop of hummus into each bowl, or serve it all family style to share!
