Vegan Falafel

Vegan Falafel PinThis Vegan Falafel recipe is great by itself with a little Tahini Salad Dressing for dipping, but it’s also a nice companion for your Falafel Salad or Falafel Sandwich.

Falafel is a traditional middle eastern dish that is popular in countries like Egypt. While its origins are very controversial, some think it dates back to the pharaohs! 

This dish is typically deep-fried in oil, but ours is an oil-free falafel. Why add all those extra calories and fat when you don’t need to? If you cook them on a non-stick griddle or skillet, you don’t need the oil.
