Falafels are a Mediterranean dish that are made with chickpeas and typically fried. However, baking falafels is a fantastic way to have a delicious, high protein, and an excellent source of folate without all the added fat. This recipe is an easy and quick way to make falafels. My kids love helping out with forming the balls with our cookie scoop that has a trigger release. They are gluten-free, make for a great appetizer and/or main dish. Can also be easily be frozen and used for future school lunches. There are so many great options for toppings and dips for falafels. In this recipe, I am a big fan of lemon tahini. We also used Sabra hummus as who has time to make multiple dips in one day?
Please share your favorite toppings and dips, along with your comments on this recipe. Enjoy!!!
