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.
