  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Spray inside of waffle iron with cooking spray.
  2. Process garbanzo beans in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add onion, egg whites, cilantro, parsley, garlic, flour, cumin, salt, coriander, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and cardamom to garbanzo beans. Pulse, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally, until falafel batter resembles a coarse meal. Pour batter into a bowl and stir with a fork.
  3. Spoon about 1/4 cup falafel batter onto each section of the preheated waffle iron. Cook until evenly browned, about 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

These were fun and delicious! The only thing I will do differently next time is to cut back on the salt (maybe by 1/2), because these came out super salty, and I even drained and rinsed the bean...

This turned out very well. I puréed the batter until it was smooth and used less salt. To stretch the recipe to serve 8, I added extra garbanzos and spices, but still just used the 2 egg whites ...

This recipe was a big hit with my wife. I really liked it too. I left out the parsley (not a fan) and added a couple tablespoons of olive oil, hoping to prevent sticking. It got better if we ...

I followed the directions exactly and sprayed the heck out of my waffle iron with Pam, but the waffles were a crumbled, stuck-on mess. I ended up making patties and frying them in a skillet. The...

This recipe is full of flavor and fun! I usually pan fry my falafel which is a pain. I turned my waffle maker on to the highest setting and sprayed generously with EVOO in between each waffle.

I took this to a pot luck and it was a big success. I also made the roasted garlic taztziki found on this site. I will never buy falafel mix again.

I love the idea of using a waffle iron for falafel. Unfortunately, I did not have success with the waffle iron, as others have mentioned. The recipe itself was also not really to my taste, esp...

I used less than 1/2 the amount of salt & then add zest of 1 lemon. Great recipe. Served with homemade Tzatziki.
