5 Ways to Eat Middle Eastern Falafel

Falafel is a popular street food all over the world, but this bite-sized appetiser has been an important component of Middle Eastern cuisine for millennia. With such a rich history, no wonder there are many exciting ways to enjoy falafel.

  1. In a salad. Falafel is the perfect vegetarian protein to transform a simple salad into a filling main course.
  2. In a wrap. Enjoy your falafel on the go by preparing a wrap filled with falafel, lettuce, veggies and sauce.
  3. With tacos. Shake things up with a Middle Eastern fusion recipe. Falafel is a great vegetarian taco filling. Swap out tzatziki for guacamole and enjoy the unique combination of Middle Eastern and Mexican flavors.
  4. As part of a mezze platter. A mezze platter isn’t complete without falafel. Add some grilled vegetables like aubergine or peppers, add a dollop of hummus, and tuck into a delicious Middle Eastern-inspired dinner. We love this Chickpea Falafel with Saffron Couscous and Harissa Yoghurt recipe that really makes a Middle Eastern mezze.
  5. As a starter. Falafel is a fantastic finger food that both picky eaters and peckish adults will enjoy. Serve it before the main dish together with yoghurt dipping sauce or hummus.
