Beetroot Falafel

Features:
    Cuisine:

      Contrary to the belief that Lebanese cuisine is meat-centric, I have
      never bemoan about the lack of vegetarian options. Rustic, homely and
      rich flavors are all but true for vegetable preparations. This cuisine
      is diverse and each factor has influenced and shaped the cuisine over
      the years.
      I have recreated this vibrant and colorful version of falafels with
      beetroot. This twist is delightful with the sweetness of beetroot and
      crunchiness of chickpeas.
      Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food, commonly served in a pita,
      which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as lafa;
      “falafel” also frequently refers to a wrapped sandwich that is prepared
      in this way. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled
      vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces. Falafel
      balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a mezze
      (appetizers).
