Falafel salad

Falafel salad.

This morning I woke up wanting a pita with falafel.

While I didn't have any pitas in the house, I did have chickpeas.

I found this really simple and great recipe here.

As usual I added my own twist. I put in a lot of fresh chopped parsley and cilantro. So much so that the mix was very green even before it hit the pan.

I have been so tired of hummus but falafel takes chickpeas to whole other level.

I assembled a butter lettuce salad with a goat milk yogurt dressing with lemon and cucumber. The falafel went on top and I drizzled it with tahini and a bit more of the cucumber yogurt.

This salad was incredibly tasty and satisfying. 

At this point I am slowly adding things back into my diet - the goat's milk yogurt today - and later this week I will probably add eggs back in. 

*Fingers crossed* that my stomach will remain happy.

  1. I do need to work on falafel, the last I made was extremely dry. Thanks for the link. I have never thought about having it as a topper for a salad-very creative. Have a nice evening.
