I don’t know about you, but discovering falafel for the first time was life-changing for me. I know that sounds a little dramatic, but it’s true. I eat falafel on its own, in wraps, on sandwiches, on salads. I bake it, I fry it … you get the idea! If you haven’t had falafel, pop into your local Trader Joe’s store, Middle Eastern restaurant, or health-food store and grab some up.
