Falafels are a traditional Middle Eastern food made with Faba beans (also known as Fava or Broad beans) and Chickpea meal.
Deliciously crispy crunchy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. Most commonly you find them rolled into a ball and deep fried and served in a wrap with chopped salad and a tahini sauce. Yum! They also make a great appetiser served with a dipping sauce. But you don’t need to deep fry them. It’s just as easy and nutritious to pan fry them with a little bit of oil. You can add finely chopped vegetables as well.
Falafel are high in protein, complex carbohydrates and fibre.
They make a great quick mid week dinner as you only need to add water to our mix and it’s easy to remember it’s 1 cup or falafel mix to 1 cup of water. Let it sit for 30 min to absorb and you are ready to go.
The falafel mix we have in store is made up of faba bean meal, chickpea meal, bulgur meal (parboiled wheat), selected herbs and spices, sesame seeds, baking soda, bicarbonate soda, salt, onion flakes, garlic powder. There are no preservatives.
