SAMPLE RECIPE: FALAFEL SALAD
GLUTEN-FREE, NUT-FREE, SOY-FREE // SERVES 6 // PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES // COOK TIME: 45 MINUTES
You’ve got everything here, folks—the crunch of freshly made falafel, a rainbow of nutrient-dense vegetables, and a healthy dose of creamy, delicious tahini dressing. For an extra fun kick, top each salad with a sprinkle of za’atar.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Place the bell pepper halves cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet.
3. Roast for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned and cut into strips.
4. Divide the lettuce among serving plates and top with the roasted peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, and onion.
5. Add the hot falafel balls and drizzle with the tahini dressing. Serve immediately
Super Easy Tip: If you’d rather not spend time roasting the peppers, you can replace them with jarred roasted red peppers or additional tomatoes and cucumbers. Alternatively, add some finely chopped red cabbage or yellow tomatoes as another way to bring a variety of textures, colors, and nutrients to your meal.
