There is a common misconception that vegetarian food means bland food. While there are definitely vegetarian foods that can be bland, there are also plenty of meats that can be bland if cooked badly. One of the most delicious types of vegetarian food that can be very tasty and have great flavor is Falafel. Falafel is a Middle Eastern food made from chickpeas or garbanzo beans(same thing just two different names for them). This is a food that is very high in protein due to the beans used to make it. As a result, they are a perfect substitute for meat because it still provides a good source of protein. There are several ways in which falafel can be made, such as deep fried balls or as patties that can be eaten like burgers. Often times, falafel will be eaten with pita, which is a flat bread, hummus, a dip or spread made from smashed chickpeas or garbanzo beans, or a yogurt sauce. What better to eat than garbanzo beans with a side of more garbanzo beans? Falafel is a delicious, nutritious, and very filling meal that will be sure to leave everyone’s stomach happy, full and content.
