Baked Falafel is a lighter alternative to the traditional fried Falafel. In lieu of deep frying the falafel balls, they are instead coated with olive oil and baked to a crisp brown. This is a great dish for those looking for a low fat option among Mediterranean foods. This recipe was created exclusively by Tarazi Foods and celebrity nutritionist Haylie Pomroy.
