Seared Falafel with Yogurt Sauce

by ADMIN on APRIL 17, 2012

Ah falafel. Delicous. Moist.

A wonderful alternative to the burger.

These fluffy chickpea patties taste great with crispy Roasted Kale and a homemade potato bun (recipe coming soon!).

Oh – and the Yogurt Sauce with lemon and honey.

Which I just so happened to finish straight from the bowl. Using my finger as a utensil.

It was a good dinner
