Steps to make Baked Falafel:

  5. Flatten them slightly with a damp spoon, brush them gently with olive oil on both sides, sprinkle on some salt and put them in the oven for 20-35 minutes, turning halfway through.
  6. You really need to keep a close eye on them, they burn fast. If you have a strong oven, you may want to lower your oven temperature and bake them for only 15-20 minutes. Enjoy :).

These falafels are golden brown and crispy on the outside. The insides are tender, delicious, and full of fresh herbs.
