Soak the chickpeas and fava beans overnight to rehydrate them.
Set up your food processor. Add chickpeas, green onion, chopped onion, garlic cloves and cilantro to the food processor. Blend everything together.
Next, add salt, pepper, coriander, and cumin to the food processor. Pulse it together.
Remove the falafel dough mixture from the food processor and place it in a bowl.
When you are ready to start frying the falafel, add the baking soda to the bowl and mix it all together.
Use an ice cream scooper to scoop out little balls of falafel dough. Release it into your hand and press in sesame seeds.
Arrange them in the air fryer and cook for 15-18 minutes at 350. Flip the falafel halfway through the cook time to make sure they’re crunchy on both sides!
Serve hot or at room temperature on it’s own or with tahini, hummus, pita bread, and salad.
