Baked Quinoa “Falafels”

with Radish & Pea Shoot Salad

Baked Quinoa “Falafels” with Radish & Pea Shoot Salad

These oven-crisped quinoa patties are inspired by falafel, everyone’s favorite fried balls of mashed chickpeas. Our mixture uses chickpea flour to help bind together cooked quinoa with other traditional falafel ingredients like parsley and cumin. Baking them on an oiled baking sheet is a healthy alternative to frying, but you’re welcome to try your hand at the stove-top method if you’d rather not use the oven.
