I am so excited about this one!
I made Falafel with Tzatziki Sauce and it was soooo GOOD!
I’ll be honest. I had never eaten falafel. I’m not sure I have actually even seen one. I have heard of them, though, and I always thought they sounded like something I would like.
The recipe I used is from Budget Bytes.
Check it out. I followed it exactly.
At Budget Bytes, She mentions that she wished she would have pan fried them instead of using cooking spray (falafel is usually deep fried). So, I used just enough palm oil, like maybe 1/8 inch in pan, to get make them crispy.
They were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.
After making them, I Googled “falafel” and learned that they normally look like a hushpuppy. I didn’t know that so mine are patties. Delicious little patties!
I also made Tzatziki sauce to go with them (recipe from the same post at Budge Bytes). It is super easy to make: green yogurt, cucumber, garlic, dill.
Justin and I felt like we were eating a cheat. They are THAT good! Packed with protein and fiber too!
