  • 1 cup dried chickpeas soaked overnight (don't use canned chickpeas)
  • 1/2 cup onion roughly chopped
  • 1 cup parsley roughly chopped (about a one large bunch)
  • 1 cup cilantro roughly chopped (about a one large bunch)
  • 1 small green chile pepper serrano or jalapeno pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 3 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • The night before, soak the dried chickpeas in water. Make sure the water covers the chickpeas by 2-3 inches, as they'll triple in size.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add them to your food processor. 
  • Add the onion, parsley, cilantro, pepper, garlic, cumin, salt, cardamom, black pepper, and baking soda to the food processor and pulse several times until it the texture becomes a fine grain. Then transfer the falafel mixture to a large mixing bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Take the mixture out of the fridge and add the chickpea flour, water, and olive oil. Mix everything together with your hands until well combined.
  • Flatten the falafel mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Gently press down with your hands to flatten.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Let the flatbread cool for about 10 minutes. Then slice it into individual pieces.



  • This recipe creates a 10.5 x 15 inch flatbread.
