Air Fryer Falafel Recipe

This post and giveaway are sponsored by Hamilton Beach. I have received the a Hamilton Beach Air Fryer for review, however, all opinions are my own. #ad #HamiltonBeach

I love a good falafel but hate the idea of the big mess it makes when you deep fry it on the stove in the kitchen. The idea of my chickpea goodness swimming in a pot of oil before it hits my plate and into my belly.  But not so, when you make falafel in an air fryer!

What is an Air Fryer?

Air Fryers, simply put, are compact convection ovens. They circulate hot air around a basket that holds your food. The Hamilton Beach Air Fryer is an easy-to-use countertop appliance that produces crispy food quickly with less fat than a deep fryer.

1. Pulse the chickpeas, parsley, cilantro, onion,. garlic, cumin, and salt in a food processor together.

2. Roll approximately 2 tablespoons of the falafel mixture into a ball and flatten  each ball with a the bottom of a glass.


3. Put a layer of falafel patties in the airy fryer basket and lightly spray with the cooking oil of your choice. I use an olive oil sprayer like this one filled with olive oil although you can use whatever oil you like!


4. Put the air fryer basket into the air fryer and press the power button. Press the temperature button and use the minus button to set the temperature to 370 degrees. Press the timer button and use the plus and minus buttons to set the time to 12 minutes. Turn the falafel patties over halfway through the cooking time.


5. Serve with tzatziki sauce.
