Vegan Falafels with Avocado Tahini Sauce
Serves 24
Sure, going out with friends is great, but eating warm falafels tucked inside soft flat bread, lathered with thick, creamy sauce, is my idea of a good weekend. Throw in some board games and your most competitive/hungry friends? An even better one. This recipe is quick, simple and can easily be made gluten free. I like to make a big batch and try to enjoy them as a snack in between meals throughout the week, but they usually don't last past Tuesday in my house. I hope this warm snack brings you as much happiness as it does for me!
