June 12th is International Falafel Day, celebrating a vegan Middle Eastern street food that’s become very popular in the U.S.

It’s an especially timely holiday, because this year, June 12th falls on a Monday. Falafel is a delicious dish for Meatless Mondays.

In addition to the most popular uses—in a pita sandwich or as part of a mezze plate, you can use falafel to top a green salad or an Israeli salad; or serve it as an appetizer with tahini, yogurt, or cucumber dip*.

Is falafel healthy food? Yes, except for the calories in the oil used for frying and the calories and carbs of the pita with which it is typically served.

Healthy tip #1: Buy frozen falafel balls (or make your own) and bake rather than fry them.

Healthy tip #2:
Serve the falafel with romaine or other lettuce leaves instead of pita.
