Herbed Falafel Patties

Looking for a nutritious and delicious meat substitute to top your dinner-size salad? Enter falafel– a patty made from ground chickpeas, herbs, and spices.

Traditionally falafel is deep-fried…and that’s a big NO for this body. Thankfully I stumbled upon a baked version at one of my favorite lunch spots a while back and have been hooked ever since.

My version of falafel is baked and loaded with all things Earthfood: chickpeas, parsley, cilantro, basil, hemp hearts, and garlic! 

In addition to an amazing salad-topper, falafel can also be served as a side dish or as a filling for tacos or Buddha bowls!
