Take me back to my health food store days, falafel!!!! (when I actually lived close to the store; thank you amazon, where would I be without you?!). These warm scrumptious balls of herbs and earthy flavor are pretty much heaven.

When I was a kid, my treat from Mom would be a warm falafel from the health food store. It came wrapped up in natural brown parchment paper. And each bite was like a teleport machine, where I was instantly whisked away to a European town, standing on a cobblestone bridge, clicking my leather boots together, and happily munching on my epic falafel. Don’t ask me why I correlate falafel with world travel.

falafel obsession. Nothing has changed.

Things haven’t changed much since then. I am still carried away with each bite of falafel. Maybe it’s the rich flavors that burst in your mouth, making each bite as exciting as the first. Maybe it’s the cute little round shape they come in that lends to it being such a whimsical experience. All I DO KNOW is that I could eat these all. day. long. And on this rainy day in the Cascades- I think I’ll do just that!

Don’t you just love mixing up things with cumin, turmeric, and cilantro! All those happy colors and vibrant feels makes my heart so happy! Go ahead, try it; resist not being happy when you make these paleo falafels.

Who else is jumping for joy that these falafels are PALEO!!!! And Whole30!!! What?! So super stoked!! All that yumminess packaged up in a beautiful crisp little offering has to be one of the best things ever… But my absolute favorite part about falafels is their distinct aroma. I could catch it a mile away (and come running!). This bowl of healthy goodness is incredibly easy to make! Because, I used my food processor to make the entire batch of falafels and tahini dressing.

    Hi Kaylie
    I am loving your recipes, everything looks so good. I would love to try this , but I am struggling with finding arrowroot flour, do you think I can substitute with something else ? Btw I am not on whole 30.
    Sorry for my bad English, I hope this is understandable 🙁

    Lots of love for you, thank you for sharing such a good recipes ❤️

    Hi there! Did you squeeze out the after fom the cauliflower after you processed it? Do you think the recipe would work with frozen riced cauliflower? I’m sure that would need to the water to be squeezed out.

    Hi Kaylie,
    followed the recipe to a tea but my falafel were more of a patty than a ball. Any suggestions? Sincere thanks 🙂

        My falafel balls came out the same way. When I blend the ingredients in the food processor the mix comes out rather runny and they come out more like pancakes. I’ve tried the recipe several times with the same outcome. I’m trying it again as we speak and adding more flour to get a better consistency. Love this recipe and would like to continue making it…any suggestion how to get the nice ball texture to it?

    These are delicious! A great filling recipe, especially since I’m a vegetarian and currently on whole30. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I also just had a co-worker try these and ask for the recipe. <3

    Made these tonight – absolutely fantastic even without the tahini dressing! I forgot the onion (woops!) so added it to the salad. These will be regulars in house! Thank you for the recipe!
