How to make Baked Sweet Potato Falafel:
  • Roast sweet potato in preheated oven at 425 deg F (220 deg C), for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Leave potatoes to cool and then peel.
  • Put sweet potatoes, chickpea flour, lemon juice, garlic, fresh coriander, coriander seeds, cumin, salt and pepper, in a large bowl and mash until there are no large chunks found.
  • Put in freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Once you remove the mixture, it should have a sticky composition.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 deg F (200 deg C). Use a soup spoon or cookie scoop to make little mounds of dough in the greased tray.
