These falafel are soft and moist on the inside, and crispy on the outside. They’re packed with nutrients and flavor, making for a pita filled with goodness.
I was walking through a local farmerís market a few months ago and noticed a tent set up serving Mediterranean food. They were the last tent in what felt like a mile-long row of vendors, yet the smells of their food served as a welcoming fragrance that lured me over.
Chickpea and quinoa salad, fresh hummus, dolma, the list goes on. Fresh, wholesome ingredients, just the way I like it. Of course, despite the fact that Iíd had breakfast less than two hours prior and didnít really have an appetite, I had to order something.
Falafel. My first falafel experience. Yes, I waited 23 years to try falafel. Sue me.
I ordered, paid for my food, sat on a bench near the tent and patiently waited for my lunch. When my name was called, I couldnít have lifted myself up fast enough. I scurried up to meet the woman who hand-made every dish. She handed me a warm, foil-wrapped gyro.
I unfolded said gyro, and got to work. Instantly, a love story was rendered. Falafel became my homeboy.
Now, here I am, almost a year later, making my own. And let me tell you, I donít have to rely on the bi-weekly Saturday farmerís market anymore.

Why are they super?
Because of these SUPERGREENS!†from organicgirl. I wanted to fit lots of supergreens into a small but flavorful package, so falafel came instantly to mind. These SUPERGREENS! contain:
Baby red chard
Baby tat soi
Baby green swiss chard
These SUPERGREENS! added a ton of nutrients and a subtle enhancement of flavor to these falafel. You’ll feel better knowing you’re packing your bite with the superest of super greens.
