What are falafels?
Falafels are deep-fried balls traditionally found in Middle Eastern cuisine, usually made from ground chickpeas, though some variants contain broad beans or fava beans. Hot and crunchy on the outside, fluffy and herby within, they are enjoyed by people all across the world.
Most often seen served inside a pita, wrap or flatbread, falafels are no longer simply fast food for vegetarians and vegans, but also as a popular snack or an exciting addition to a wide variety of dishes. They are a great source of protein, nutrients and fibre.
