Loved all across the Middle East, falafel can be a snack, salad ingredient, an on-the-go meal or part of a wholesome meal, any time of the day. According to the Jews, this fried dish of mashed legumes has a long and diverse history that begins in Egypt and spreads as far out as Morocco, and Saudi Arabia. Blend in our 100% natural Garlic Vegan Mayo in the falafel mixture to add a touch of spice to this healthy snack.
Give the falafel balls room to breathe by cooking only a few at a time on the pan. This helps in keeping the temperature of the oil from dropping, and also prevents the falafel balls from bumping into each other while they cook.
