Baked falafel on a plate with dip
Baking this falafel recipe turns a not-so-healthy recipe in to a nutritious take on the traditional mediterranean dish. Falafel is a great source of protein with only a few ingredients to create this yummy recipe.
Falafel gives you the filling taste of a burger or meatball without the energy spike and fall. The high fiber content allows for slow, consistent digestion, while the chickpeas give the body a boost of iron.
You can make this dish in a large batch to keep leftovers in the fridge whenever you need a quick meal. A great pairing to this mediterranean favorite that you should try is a healthy tzatziki feta dip. This dip has all the delicious flavor as the tzatziki dip you are familiar with and is great to scoop with vegetables. Everyone will love it.
