This is an easy, yet healthy dish, filled with lots of flavor. Homemade Falafel topped with tomatoes, cucumbers, purple onions, greek plain yogurt, dash of salt, pepper, dill and paprika with olive oil is all you need. Pita bread and greek olive hummus compliments the side. It’s a great combination of a platter. For leftovers the nest day all you have to do is open up the Pita bread and add everything in there with some lettuce.
Falafel is a deep fried ball or patty made from ground chick peas and/or fava beans. Falafel is usually served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as lafa. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini based beans. Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a meze.
