Easy homemade falafel recipe (Vegan) 🥗

Falafel sandwich in a basket with sauce on the side

In some places they use fava beans or a mixture of chickpeas and fava beans. Since it’s easier for most people to find chickpeas, and I want this to be an easy falafel recipe, I went with just chickpeas. This may not be the world’s best falafel, but I really like it, and it’s gout-friendly and accidentally vegan.

This version will use some seasoned spinach banchan (Sigeumchi-namul) in my last recipe and some that we will make for the dish. Gosari 고사리 is also really good in bibimbap.
