Baked Falafel with Tzatziki Sauce

Jump To Recipe

I have been craving Falafel lately for some reason.  There are about 25 pins of different recipes under my ‘food to try’ board on Pinterest I’ve been dying to make.  This isn’t from a specific recipe, but it’s a compilation of about 15 different ones that I read. Traditionally, falafel is fried, which, let’s be honest, is delicious, but not really what I wanted or needed.  There are several recipes out there that call for pan frying, still not quite the right route, or baking.  Bingo! Baked Falafel with Tzatziki Sauce, the equally delicious and more thigh friendly version.

If you’re not familiar with falafel, it’s basically thick hummus that’s formed into patties and fried.  Or baked falafel in this case.  The baked falafel are so incredibly flavorful!  Especially when topped with an easy to make, non fat tzatziki sauce, sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and olives.  If you’re looking for something that’s easy to prepare and make ahead, this baked falafel is a good go to.  I prepped this on Monday, and it’s been so easy to heat up and nibble on all week.  I served my baked falafel with tzatziki sauce over small pitas, but they’d be great over a big Greek salad or made into a vegetarian Greek burger.
