You won’t feel awful about eating this falafel! Falafel was originally created by the Egyptians as a replacement for meat during Lent. Falafel is a staple and common street food in the Middle East. It is usually served stuffed into pita bread with hummus and/or tzatziki.
Falafel has basically the same ingredients as hummus, the main difference is that the falafel isn’t blended as much as hummus. Try experimenting with adding other ingredients like bell peppers or zucchini.
Eat them as a snack, side dish or even as a main course, since they provide a punch of protein and carbohydrate. This recipe makes about 15 falafel patties, so freeze them if you have leftovers. They thaw perfectly!
