Falafel Frenzy

Recipe time!

Last week, Scott and I made our regular trip to Trader Joe’s and picked up some frozen falafels, which inspired the meal.  Actually, everything here was purchased from Trader Joe’s but if you’re not lucky enough to have one near you, I bet most if not all of this could be found just about anywhere.



Disclaimer: I know it’s not plated very prettily but it still tasted delicious.  Also, yes, that is a wine sippy cup in the background and I bet you wish that your awesome little sister bought you one too.

So we bought a bag of the frozen falafels, which basically went into the oven per the directions on the bag.  We also purchased: pita pockets, garlic hummus, kale salad, avacados and a container of tabouli.  The hummus and tabouli went inside the pita bread, then we broke up the falafels and stuck them in there too.  Kale salad was served as a side along with actual pita chips which we dipped in more hummus.  The avacados were kind of a random addition, I’ll admit, but we eat them just about every night and I was really hungry so they were added to the plate.

The whole thing took maybe 20 minutes to put together and that includes time in the oven.  It was super easy and super full of protein, which is awesome for our vegetarian selves.  We actually bought the same ingredients again last weekend and plan on having a friend over later this week to help us enjoy another meal.  Maybe I’ll take a better looking picture then?  Or maybe I’ll be too busy stuffing my face to care.  Again.
