Spicy Caribbean Falafels

Falafel recipe

Oh, how I love Falafels; they’re savory, fulfilling, and a great substitute for meat! And no… they do NOT taste like meat, but they are dense, so after eating a few you will no longer feel the need to snack on anything else. For those who are unfamiliar with Falafels here is a little fun history fact…

Falafels originated from ancient Egypt, and its name came from the Arabic word for spicy, mefelfel. It quickly became a favorable “fast food” throughout the Middle East and has been transformed into the Israeli national street food.

There are so many different ways to eating and preparing Falafels. I personally love eating them inside a pita with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and onion smothered a nice creme sauce... yes I have a sauce problem… I also enjoy eating them in a salad, or lettuce wrap.
