If you can’t find a local restaurant selling delicious falafel sandwiches, here’s a video that shows how easy they are to make at home.
And here’s a falafel recipe along with recipes for your choice of tahini sauce, yogurt sauce or garlic sauce.
Made from chickpeas and/or fava beans, garlic, parsley, cilantro and seasonings, falafel is a vegan food that is an excellent ambassador for how tasty vegan cuisine can be.
Falafel is also dairy-free, cholesterol-free, egg-free, sugar-free and potentially gluten-free.
Falafel is frequently enjoyed in a flatbread wrap or pita pocket, along with lettuce, tomato, tahini sauce and pickled turnips (also included in our falafel recipe).
You can also add falafel balls to a green salad or serve them with a yogurt dip or as part of a mezze (appetizer) plate with feta, hummus, babaganoush and/or tabbouleh—delicious dips now available in many supermarkets.
