Mediterranean Falafel Bowl with Fresh California Avocado

Mediterranean Falafel Bowl with Fresh...

Author: Elizabeth Shaw

This Mediterranean-inspired falafel bowl uses Fresh California Avocados and spicy jalapeño to bring these vibrant flavors to life! In place of traditional sesame paste, Fresh California Avocados were swapped to serve as a binder to hold the chickpea batter together, keeping these nut- and seed-free for those with food allergies, while also providing an excellent source of fiber (13 grams or 46% DV) and protein (17 grams or 34% DV). Increase your vegetable intake by serving the falafel patties salad style with chopped butter leaf lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes, and garnish with a traditional Greek yogurt sauce, or create a handheld sandwich and enjoy in a whole grain pita on the fly!
