These will keep for several days and can be reheated in a toaster oven (or microwave). The texture of these falafel balls will be slightly different than what you are used to. That is caused by baking versus frying, and using baking powder and potato starch instead of flour. These baked falafel balls are Passover Kosher!

From Plant-Based on a Budget:
Apart from their delicious taste and amazing benefits, these baked falafels are fantastic because there isn’t any frying involved. Preparing falafel usually requires frying them in a large amount of oil and it’s done in batches. In summary, it’s a lot more work and unnecessary oil, so this recipe is the ultimate winner.
As easy as these are to make, it is a great idea to make them in batches and save them for your weekly lunches. Trust us, there are so many delicious ways to eat falafel! Should we explore some ideas?
The classic way to enjoy these delicious balls is inside some pita bread pockets with varied veggies and topped with some tahini-based sauce which is so delicious, but how else could we enjoy them? They’d be a perfect addition to a macro bowl or any leftover bowl you make. You could also make a few burgers out of the falafel mix and eat them in a bun. So good! Let us know if you come up with any other ideas.
