I very much like vegetarian food. I actually think I could be vegetarian if it weren’t for pork belly. And Bacon. I loved vegetarian food even more when I ate my first falafel kebab. This love grew when I ate Yami Falafel in Brunswick Heads. So freaking delicious.

Then one day, I made falafel at home, not really expecting much. But I tell you, it was good. I made it again for my friends, including a vego, and they loved it. So much so we had it again for dinner 4 days later. So I thought I’d share the recipe for you guys.

For me, these crispy falafels are best served with parsley, tomato and a creamy tahini yoghurt sauce on a pita bread.  They are such an easy mid week meal but also perfect for a fancy dinner with friends. You might also like some red onion and cucumber on your Falafel wraps.

I like mine with these things too, but forgot to buy them the day I shot this recipe. Whoops.
