Baked Falafel With Aioli Sauce–Gluten Free

{A guest post from Meghan @ eat. live. make.}

 We’ve gone greek and are loving it! We had some new friends over a few nights ago and wanted to give them a fun gluten free culinary experience. It was their first time to eat totally gluten free and vegan, and we wanted to show them how much fun and delicious it can be.

Our menu consisted of this Falafel, Middle East salad, Hummus, “grape leaf wraps” and gfcf black bean brownies. I’ll be sharing most of these recipes with you throughout the week and month. 

Falafel Ingredients:

  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 1/4 C. cilantro leaves
  • 1 t. ground cumin
  • 1 t. coriander
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 flax egg
  • 2 T. chickpea flour
  1. Place all ingredients (except flour) into food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Remove and place in large mixing bowl and add flour and flax egg. Stir to combine
  3. Heat oven to 400 degrees and place 2 T. size balls onto oiled baking sheet.
  4. Place in oven. Cook each side for 15 minutes or until browned. 
Aioli Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1/4 C. tahini
  • 1/4 C. vegan mayo
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 t. salt 
  • 1/4 C. water
  1. Combine all ingredients and whisk together until smooth.

    Do you have any preferences on the brand of vegan mayo? I’ve been skeptical about trying these!
