Gluten-Free Falafel

This Gluten-Free Falafel may be one of the easiest recipes that I have ever made. This recipe doesn’t involve many ingredients and it only took me about 20 minutes to make. This recipe is packed with flavor, gluten-free, and naturally vegan. It makes about 10 falafel total. I like topping the falafel over a salad with tahini sauce. The falafel also taste great in pita bread.

Veggies: You will also need Garlic, Red Onion, Lemon juice for this recipe.

Avocado Oil:  I use avocado oil for high temperature cooking and air frying because it has a high smoke point.
