Falafel has become a popular vegan food as it is a great source of protein for people who have cut meat out of their diet. It is low in fat and if you serve it with veggies in a pita, it becomes a filling and nourishing meal!
What is falafel
Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern dish made from chickpeas, or fava beans. It is a popular street food or “take away” meal. These fried vegetarian fritters are often served along with hummus and tahini sauce and served in a pita.
You can also try replacing the pita with wraps, or simply eat the falafel balls on their own.
