Herb + Hemp Seed Falafels – Nyoutritious
The always resourceful Inspo contributor Regina Barker features a homemade version of one of her favorite “take-out” dishes. Check it out.
I love friday nights. It’s our “date night in” most weeks, and the night we spend catching up over a glass of wine with some easy food. Sometimes this means take-out from our favourite Lebanese restaurant down the road, but this week it’ll be my homemade version of our favourite take-out in the form of these mini falafels wrapped up in lettuce leaves and topped with cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, hummus & tahini dressing.
If you’re looking for some easy homemade take-out food, here’s an idea to add to your list. These are easy to make, keep well in the fridge for a few days and are baked instead of fried, and full of fresh ingredients, making them a healthier alternative to the deep fried version! They are great for kids too, but be warned that they can get a little messy. Baked instead of deep fried also means they are a more crumbly than your typical falafel… there’s always a price, right?! Hah!
I love serving these with my homemade creamy hummus or my bean free hummus. The bean free hummus recipe was posted when I first started blogging and while the pic is pretty awful, the recipe is awesome. I really promise! Ha. I love looking through some of my early recipes and laughing (slash cringing) at the photos. It reminds me of how great humble beginnings are (and still are!).
Also, please let me know your favourite homemade take-out foods if you have any!??
