I have the best falafel recipe because it’s GREEN and I love serving it on a plater with grain-free pita for a delicious, well-rounded meal.
Fresh Spring Spinach is here and I’m thrilled, I love using it in so many ways and today I’m using it in a delicious falafel platter two ways… both in the falafel itself and in a spring salad. I’m also using a couple of recent recipes I’ve posted in this platter, cloud bread as the pita bread and sauerkraut – I was licking the plate clean, folks. This is a perfect veggie and protein packed lunch or dinner.
Now, I’ve tried many times and failed many times at making a good falafel that isn’t fried. It’s not as easy as it looks! BUT, patience is a virtue. I stuck with it and got this recipe out of it.
I’m super picky about the consistency, living in NYC there is so much awesome falafel out there, I feel the need to do it justice having eaten so much of it in my lifetime HAHA. So this was worth the wait AND I’ve got 2 ways of cooking it, either half seared and half baked, or all baked. Whatever your little heart desires. When I have the time and I just want to toss it in the oven, that’s the way I go, but if I want a little extra crispiness from the stove top, I go that route. Both ways are a great consistency, hold together and are nice and soft in the middle.
I found the pea protein makes for a super soft inside which I LOVE!

Spring Salad: 4 handfuls of mixed greens (baby spinach, baby kale) with sliced radishes, micro-greens, red wine vinegar & olive oil topped with hemp seeds. I also added in my homemade sauerkraut.
Hope you enjoy!

Oh wow, this is totally my kind of Mediterranean feast! I would devour this plate and then have seconds and probably not stop until I had polished off some thirds! I only do non-fried falafel but you’re right, it can be tricky! I love that your version has the pea protein – sounds like that gives it a great consistency. And it’s such a beautiful patty 🙂
Truthfully… I had two servings so I’m with you, lady! It came out so delicious. Thanks for visiting 🙂 XO
Nice… I like patties. It should be really good if making vegan burger with these patties. 🙂
So true, you can easily make these into burgers! 🙂
