Falafel are delicious balls of chickpea and herb goodness that you find in Middle Eastern cooking. Naturally vegan and vegetarian, falafel are great in wraps, pitas, sandwiches and salads.

It is best had with hummus. It is a creamy dip made with chickpeas that is so yummy and healthy. I am going to show you both the recipes. This is a great party appetizer and it can also be had as a snack or as a filling for wraps.
