  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a food processor blend together the chickpeas, garlic, onion, cumin, cayenne, herbs, a teaspoon of salt, pepper, baking soda, and lemon juice. Add water by the teaspoon if the machine is not blending easily.
  3. On a lined baking sheet, spoon out the chick pea mixture into about 1.5 inch scoops. Flatten out the scoops to form patties and then brush the olive oil on top.
  4. Bake until the patties are golden brown, about 10-15 minutes per side.
  5. In a small bowl whisk the tahini with ½ cup water and the remaining salt. Drizzle the tahini sauce over the falafel before serving.
  6. Serve the falafel by itself or in a pita as a sandwich with Israeli salad, cabbage slaw and hummus.
