A Middle Eastern Dish. Falafel is a wonderful combination of Fava beans and Chickpeas blended together. A fried ball or patty of spiced field beans or chickpeas, dating back to Biblical times and originating somewhere on the Indian subcontinent. Falafel today is eaten in India, Pakistan and the Middle East and through many years of migration we also enjoy this vegetarian dish here in America. It is traditionally served as a pita sandwich with a yogurt, Tahina or Tzatziki Sauce depending on where it is being made. It is a wonderful addition to any meal. Vegetarian with very low sodium and easy to make. Soak your beans overnight and you will have a great meal for tomorrow…
