Falafels are one of my goto favourite plant based foods. They are super simple to put together and I eat them alot with hummus or fry them in a little oil to make them even better in a pitta or a rye crisp bread sandwich.

  • Falafels

    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, crushed or chopped

How To Make ‘Em
